Commenting on the matter, Brig. Gen. Akpaumontia said: ‘The fire incident at Olowu market calls for serious security concerns. This is particularly so as this incident makes it the third major inferno on markets in Lagos State within one month. The first was the Spareparts market at Akere in Ajegunle general area on 8 Mar 23 and the second at Balogun market on 29 Mar 23. This underscores the need to consciously investigate the causes of these incessant menace. To this end, the Brigade would continue to liaise with the other security agencies to unravel the circumstances surrounding the Fire.’

‘Additionally, sister agencies like the DSS and the Intelligence arm of the Police in Lagos State could also initiate investigation into the reoccurring incidents. This will combat the recurrence of the incidences in Lagos and possibly arrest the culprits involved in the criminal act’, Akpaumontia told NAOSNP.
