A fire broke out at the popular Prince Ebeano Supermarket at Lokogoma district in Abuja late on Saturday.

The spokesperson of the Federal Capital Territory Fire Service, Ibrahim Muhammad, said that firefighters from several fire service stations in Asokoro, Garki, Games Village and the National Judicial Institute in Abuja combatted the “massive” fire.

According to him, the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.

He said that it was not yet known if lives were lost and the extent of property lost in the incident.

“Until after the fire has been put off we cannot say if any life was lost to the inferno,” Mr Muhammad said.

In 2019, Prince Ebeano Supermarket constructed a 3.2-kilometre road in Lokogoma-Gudu, Abuja, providing motorists in the Lokogoma area with a much-needed alternative route. 

On November 3, 2015, there was also a major fire outbreak at the Prince Ebeano Supermarket at Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.
