Scores of shanties have been razed by fire at Okobaba, Ebute Metta area of Lagos State.
It was gathered that the fire outbreak started a few minutes past 7 pm on Sunday.
The cause of the fire outbreak could not be ascertained as of the time of filing this report.
An eyewitness, Amodu Shehu, lamented that the incident recurred one year after the area was gutted by fire.
In November 8, 2019 a similar fire outbreak occurred and no fewer than five buildings, and many shanties were razed, including a bakery.
The inferno, which lasted about three hours in 2019, gutted buildings and shanties on Jebba, Okobaba, Tapa, Coates, and Kano streets around noon.
It also rendered thousands of people homeless, with some having to sleep at the burnt site, Okobaba Football Pitch, and Okobaba Sawmill for many days.
