Goods worth N400 million, vehicles and several shops have been destroyed by a midnight fire incident at the mechanic village in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
According to artisans and technicians working in the mechanic village, the fire outbreak occurred on Sunday night at about 3 am when the traders were at their various homes.
Though the cause of the inferno could not be immediately established, those doing business in the area have suspected electrical fault as the primary cause that ignited the incident.
A spare part dealer in the village, Stanley Ejike, whose shop and goods worth over N10 million were burnt by the inferno, however, expressed gratitude that no life was lost.
He said about 13 vehicles parked at the arena for repairs were burnt down to ashes, adding that the incident has caused hardship to several people doing business in the mechanic village.
The leader of the Non-Indigenes Association in the state, Chief Chinedu Arthur-Ugwa, who conducted newsmen round the property destroyed by the inferno pleaded with the state government to assist those affected to enable them to return back to normal business.
