Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has visited the scene of the fire outbreak in Balogun market to sympathize with the affected traders who lost millions of goods to the inferno.
There was no casualty except for a policeman who lost his life in a building which was razed to rubbles by the fire.
The governor, while addressing the traders on Wednesday, said that the unfortunate incident has put the government in check to prevent a future occurrence.
Sanwo-Olu added that he would meet with the owners of the abandoned high rise buildings dotting the community to support the rebuilding of their properties.
He implored all families that own various properties on Lagos Island to support the move.
