Bauchi governor to compensate market fire victims
Governor Bala Mohammed says he will compensate victims of a fire that razed Sabuwar Kasuwa along Railway Road in Bauchi metropolis.
On June 1, 2021, the fire destroyed 25 shops with goods worth millions of naira destroyed.
Mr Mohammed, while visiting the scene of the incident on Sunday to sympathise with the victims and assess the damage, ordered the release of funds to assist the victims.
“As part of our administration’s desire to modernise markets across the state, we will also consider restructuring this market to advance business activities and further assist in reducing the level of fire disasters in marketplaces,” Mr Mohammed said.
Earlier, Kabiru Kobi, a director in the Bauchi State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), said the agency had already assessed the damages to enable proper documentation and intervention by the state government.
“Your Excellency, 25 shops were affected as a result of this fire incident, and goods worth millions of naira were destroyed.
“SEMA has conducted an assessment of the damages for proper intervention and assistance by the state government to alleviate the sufferings of the victims,” explained Mr Kobi.
