I visited the scene of the fire incident that occurred at Central Market, Kaduna on Friday night alongside the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mal. Balarabe Abbas Lawal to assess the extent of damage and commiserate with the victims. The incident was truly an unfortunate one and we sympathize with those who have lost their properties in the process.
The Kaduna State Government under the able leadership of Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai is committed to supporting those who lost their properties in the fire incident and sensitization of traders on safety precautions in order to curb future occurrence of this kind.
I commend the State Fire Service for their prompt response and the Kaduna State Police Command for ensuring safety of lives and properties.
