Fire Guts Amigos Supermarket In Abuja by GISTBL0G: 10:34pm On Jul 09
The popular and well sought after ‘Amigos Supermarket’ also known as ‘4U Supermarket’, in Wuse 2, Abuja, was gutted by fire on Tuesday.

Mr Jerry Timvh, Public Relations Officer (PRO), Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Fire Service, confirmed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Timvh said that the fire outbreak, which affected only the warehouse section of the store, started at about 1:30p.m but was successfully put out by firefighters at 7:30p.m.

According to him, the cause of the fire is yet to be discovered as investigation is ongoing.

“The fire incident led to the loss of many goods in the store but an exact estimate of how much is yet to be revealed.

“The fire did not affect the main supermarket as it was controlled to reduce wild spread.

“There was no casualty as shoppers and staff of the store were able to evacuate the store immediately the fire started,” he said.

Amigos supermarket name was changed to ‘4U supermarket’ in 2015.

RAWLINGS, FORMER GHANAIAN PRESIDENT ADVISES NIGERIANS!

JJ Rawlins: I can't believe that despite the setback of Nigeria as a result of a failed British experiment on that country, Nigeria is still very much in Love with them.

Nigeria has everything it needs to be the greatest country not just in Africa but in the world the British knew about it.

There are two things that can salvage Nigeria:

the first is Nigeria must peacefully retire these old colonial leaders who are still servants to western imperialism,

the second is Nigeria must restructure their country back to the days when it was regional system of government.

Let every region develop at its own pace, build its resources and people.

With this that country called Nigeria will be the greatest hub for the people of color in the world.

~JJ. Rawlins
Former Ghanaian President.

Its a pity that you can't understand sarcastic statements. Am not surprised, you obviously have an IQ of a single digit

Am far ahead academically than the most educated person in your lineage. That Nairaland is a faceless forum doesn't give you the room to haul unsolocited insults on some one.

Be Warned!

even in developed countries he get some kind fire wey you go leave to burn itself out o especially if the life of the fire fighters are in threatened. I don't know much about other states but I know FCT fire services is one of the most active in this country.

Yes it is possible it takes that long. Learn more about fire bro before going on Nigeria this and that stuff.
I'm certainly not ruling out unpreparedness or unprofessionalism on the part of the fire service. Sometimes, they just have to control the fire from spreading because it can't be put out based on the fuel(materials) in the building
