Fire Outbreak Razes Ex-President Shagari’s Family House In Sokoto

A fire outbreak was reported at the family house of Former President, late Shehu Aliyu Shagari in Sokoto on Saturday.

The late Shagari’s house located in the Gobirawa area in the Sokoto metropolis was estimated to accommodate over 20 family members

Although the cause of the fire outbreak has not yet been ascertained and no life was lost, properties worth billions of naira were said to have been destroyed by the inferno as the fire overpowered the efforts of good Samaritans in the area to evacuate some valuable properties and control the fire.

However, people booed fire service personnel for their coming to the incident late saying “Bama so”, Bama so”, which means we don’t want, we don’t want.

Alhaji Umaru Sarkin Zangon, a neighbour of the family house said the fire outbreak started around 11 a.m and razed the entire building.

Zango stated that all efforts by the people of the area to quench the fire in the early stages before the arrival of the fire service proved abortive.

Speaking further, another witness, Aisha Tsohon Gidan Shagari, said the fire which gutted the house of the former president further escalated to the neighbouring houses due to the lateness of the service vehicles to arrive at the incident scene on time.
