Otti in a press release signed by Ferdinand Ekeoma, his Special Adviser on media and publicity, said he was pained by the misfortune which befell the Aba traders at a time of serious economic challenges in the country.

He advised traders in different markets in the State and other residents to apply the best of safety measures in preventing future fire occurrences, especially in this harmattan season.

The Governor also called on leaders of different markets in the State, especially market Chairmen and Chief Security Officers, to assume responsibility and ensure absolute protection of the markets.

Otti warned that ‘there would be far reaching consequences for any form of internal or external sabotage’.

Expressing his joy that no life was lost during the fire outbreaks, Governor Otti assured the traders that his government was determined to get to the remote and immediate cause or causes of the incidents, saying that he already dispatched some government officials led by the General Manager of Greater Aba Development Authority (GADA) and the Mayor of Aba North to assess the magnitude of the fire incidents with a view to providing succour to the victims.
