A mosque and about 15 other shops in the Sokoto Central Motor park have been razed by fire on Sunday morning, November 6, 2016.

According to a report by Leadership, the fire was reportedly caused as a result of fluctuating power supply.

Properties worth millions of Naira were reportedly destroyed by the inferno which claimed no life even as some people reportedly escaped by whiskers when the inferno began.

The fire was said to have been put out by the combined efforts of the Sokoto state fire service and travellers who were at the park during the incident.
