We called 112 emergency line, a million times, they picked and they said the fire fighters are on their way. For over an hour, we kept on calling. Mind you there’s a fire station inside Unilag and also one at Onike. But none came to their aid.

Until the fire was almost out. Eventually after the fire had caught a boutique nearby and was also making its way to the popular NEXT Salon. The firefighters came, escorted by a police van, but it was too late, the area boys attacked their truck and they fled the scene, the fire has been put out but the shops are gone. Millions of Naira gone, in this recession.”

My question is: ‘How about the Unilag fire service’. I mean they have a stand-by fire truck in school. Couldn’t it have driven down to the scene to help put out the fire? Negligence at its peak. Nigeria!
