He said the cause of the fire is unknown but an eyewitness said it was a result of a spark from an electricity pole close to one of the shops.

The fire was, however, put out to prevent further escalation by the combined effort of the NSCDC disaster management response team, fire service personnel and residents living within the area.

He said no casualty was recorded but the inferno consumed property and valuables worth millions of naira.
