Oja Tuntun, one of the biggest markets in Ile-Ife, Osun State,  has been razed by a midnight inferno on Tuesday which destroyed millions of goods.

The fire, as it was gathered started around 11:30 pm on Tuesday from a shop and spread to other parts of the market.

As at the time of this report, the cause of the incident is yet to be ascertained.

It was gathered that the inferno was the third fire incident in the market in 2020.

A source told our correspondent that late response from the fire service also contributed to the spread of the fire and caused more destruction.

Meanwhile, it was also learnt that hoodlums took advantage of the incident to loot goods in some stores.

The spokesperson of the Federal Fire Service in Osun State, Basiri Adija, did not respond to calls and text messages sent to her.
