I secured a loan facility to furnish this place but all my belongings have been completely destroyed. We need the government’s intervention. One of my siblings was staying in my structure. He had his mattress and luggage inside. I secured a loan facility, and I’ve spent around four thousand five hundred on it.

The fire started around 2:30 pm. I was almost here when I heard of the incident. I was told someone was using a gas cylinder at the time. What is very sad about this is that, a 17-year-old boy and a small child with him were together locked inside a room and got burnt. We were unable to save them. The 17-year-old was a driver’s mate. I am also a driver’s mate. This is indeed a sad situation for us. The foam company located here has been here for a very long timeNana Yaw also shared his.
According to sources, many properties were lost and victims are crying out for the government’s support.
