Seventeen Shops and property worth millions of naira were destroyed at the new market in Gombe, Gombe State, on Wednesday morning.
The incident is coming hours just after a similar one in Makurdi Benue State in which several goods and property were also destroyed. Like in Markudi, the cause of the Gombe fire is yet to be ascertained as the traders were seen lamenting their fate after at the scene.
Some of them especially, those at the Line Dukawa, where several sewing machines and other goods were destroyed called on the State and Federal Governments to come to their aid.
