The popular supermarket in Abuja, Next cash and carry in Kado, is currently on fire, a day after Christmas, and people appear to be questioning why supermarkets are being destroyed.
The source of the fire is yet unknown, and no reports of lives lost have been released. Despite the fact that the business is on fire, people are spotted looting it.
Nigerians have flocked to social media to express their displeasure with the situation, recalling that a prominent store, Ebeano, caught fire a few months ago.
Some people, however, believe it is unusual that Ebeano caught fire and that Next Cash and Carry only burned down.
A Twitter user said, “The fire service truck that used to be stationed at Next Cash and carry went where? All the fire hydrants I see don’t function? cos WTF? I have plenty of questions before Shoprite kills us with bills.“
Another Twitter user said, “Ebeano supermarket burnt down. Next cash and carry Abuja is presently on fire. Should we call this a mere coincidence?“
