Ogbaru market fire outbreak fake - ASMATA PG


By Chinwe Nwacha, Onitsha

The President General, PG, Anambra State Markets Amalgamated Traders' Association, ASMATA, Chief Humphrey Anuna, weekend described as false and unfounded, the allegation that  made the round that some plazas  in Ogbaru Relief, (Main) market, was on fire last Friday.

Chief Anuna who expressed dismay at the social media fake report that the incident happened at Ogbaru market said that such thing never happened in the said market or in any markets in the State.

"There was no such fire outbreak in Ogbaru Relief (Main) market, nor in any market in the State. It was a figment of the imagination of the social media writer.

"Such fake news by the social media should be stopped to avoid sudden death because somebody who is having High Blood Pressure, HBP, may die on hearing that his wares in the market have been gutted by fire," he advised.

Reacting also, the chairman of the said market, Chief Daniel Ogbogu Nwanodi, stated that there was no such inferno nor plazas in the market pointing out that even such structures as displayed in the social media, were not found in the market and its environs.

"We don't have such plazas in the market nor was any shop in the market on fire last Friday. Unless in other markets not in Ogbaru Relief (Main) market.

"In the market and its environs there is no such plazas, so they know where they got such picture of plazas on fire with thick smoke bellowing from the plazas. All I know is that there is no such inferno in our market on Friday and there will never be," the chairman affirmed.
