Consoling the shop owners whose businesses worth millions of naira were completely destroyed, Gov Obiano represented by his Deputy, Dr Nkem Okeke expressed shock that live-savings of Ndi Anambra could be burnt within minutes.

Dr Okeke, struggling to hold back his tears said he cut short his schedule to be at the scene noting that “this kind of incident worries our dear governor… together we shall make efforts to avoid future occurrence”.
