Several houses and goods have been destroyed as fire gutted the popular Terminus Market, Jos Friday night.
The spokesperson of the Plateau State Police Command, Matthias Tyopev, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, confirmed the incident, saying the inferno was severe.
Topev told the Punch, “Yes, there was a fire incident at the popular Terminus Market in Jos. Goods and warehouses were destroyed. The Plateau State Commissioner of Police (Undie Adie), and chairman of Jos North Local Government Area were there to ascertain the level of damage and you will get the details from me later.
“For now, we can’t estimate the total amount lost because of the fire because so many people were involved; the money lost is unquantifiable because the fire incident was very severe.”
Traders, who came to market on Saturday morning, broke down uncontrollably in tears.
