The Trinity Spare Parts Market in the Olodi Apapa area of Ajegunle, Lagos was on fire and no fewer than 150 shops, including their materials, were consumed by an inferno. It is unclear what the cause of the fire was, but it is believed that the fire was caused by an electrical power surge  in one of the shops at a section of the plaza some minutes after 3pm.

A  resident of the area, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said,  “This whole incident started when PHCN restored power here around 1.00p.m. Not long after that, I saw a thick smoke coming from one of the shops on B line, though I didn’t know the fire was going to be this big and spread to other parts of the plaza.”
