bus stop, off Unilag road. Boys came out and tried to put it off but it got worse and caught the next building,” an unnamed resident said.

“We called 112 emergency line, a million times, they picked and said the firefighters were on their way. For over an hour, we kept on calling. Mind you there’s a fire station inside Unilag and also one at Onike. But none came to their aid.

“Eventually, after the fire had caught a boutique and was also making its way to the popular NEXT Salon, the firefighters came escorted by a Police Van, but it was too late. The area boys stacked their trucks and they fled the scene. The fire has been put out but the shops are gone. Millions of Naira gone in this recession,” he added.
