Ochanja fire incidient which claimed lives of many and destroyed properties worth millions yesterday October 16, is still on .

People at the scene of the tragic incident claimed that the state government was not able to provide fire truck instead it borrowed truck from a neighbouring state, Delta State.

They said the truck from Delta State came with water which wasn’t enough and that’s why the fire is still destroying things in some parts of the market uptil now .

It was further gathered that some of the traders who don’t believe in putting their money in banks, had some money in their stores which reportedly got burnt after the inferno.

An Anambra OAP, Gwen Divy Ifeson who reacted to the incident shared a photo of the budget allocation to Anambra Fire Service from 2013 till date.

She wrote;

This is the budget of Anambra State Fire service since 2013 till date.
Dear Anambraians,
They must tell us what these monies were used for.
None of the fire service team in Onitsha had water nor good tyre.
In 2016 when such inferno happened at the same spot the government gave lots of promises. We no longer want bed promises we want a proactive measure to be put in place this time.
We must get it right
