Sabo Market Fire: How social media reacted to Sagamu disaster
Social media has been flooded with messages following the Tuesday’s inferno that gutted the popular Sabo market in Sagamu Local Government Area.
It is understood that goods worth several millions of naira were destroyed as shop owners count their losses.
Although Governor Dapo Abiodun has promised to rebuild the burnt market after his immediate visit to the scene, Nigerians took to Twitter to condemn the rapidly occurring fire outbreak across the country and also expressed their sympathy with the residents.
This is my Aunty Sariyu, she lost 3 shops in a fire that gutted the whole of Sabo Market in Sagamu with a rough value of about 20 million Naira.#SaboMarketFire
My mother’s shop too got burnt.
And so many other women!

Sabo market in Sagamu on fire, less than a week after Amu market fire in Lagos. I hurt to see people lose their means of survival. Govt & Market leaders should ensure environments are at less risk during the harmattan season. The harmattan wind is a catalyst for a fire outbreak.

Sabo Market in Sagamu going down in flames today.
It started at midnight night just like all previous incidents regarding market burning.
I pray we wake up from slumber in south west.
We don’t care if it doesn’t affect us not knowing if we might be next
