Tejuosho got burnt!!!

its sad sad sad sad....i passed through the market and i cant recognize it...everywhere is upside down....a large part of the market is burnt.a huge part..the traders stare at their shops and i can see the sadness in their eyes...its the festive period...they also want to eat jollof rice and buy christmas clothes for their family.and shop..then this happens...a few people died....its so sad.

That place holds memories for me and probably alot of Nigerians..i remember going there alot with my mum as a kid...was even there last week.


I almost feel like saying may God grant them d fortitude to bear the loss...cause it does feel that sad and for some of them..their wares were their means of livelihood... i hope something gets done...and plans to start rebuilding are on the way....


so sad!

yeah, i took cognizance bout it, i happen to tour the market regularly when am less busy, not a bad place to picture chicks on a saturday,people died i gathered, but also it was bcos they thought they could go in and rescue some of their stuff. I am excluding the fireman who died in the line of duty. mishaps are bound to occur but the way we handle them is very impt.somethings can really be helped, i am not saying that i do not feel for those that lost their lives,i only think we should be wiser , really it's our poverty mentality.may their soul rest in piece, i cant wait for the market to rock again, happy new year nerd

Oh OH!! This is such sad news. I can only imagine the value of the goods and money that the unfortunate traders have lost.


Happy New Year.
