The largest auto parts market in Ibadan, Araromi market at Agodi Gate, has been gutted by fire leaving several shops and properties destroyed.

Traders wailed as the fire which started in the early hours of Saturday raged on for many hours.

The distressed traders were said to have called the attention of the Oyo State Fire Service as others made frantic efforts to put out the fire.

Eyewitnesses explained to Channels Television that on arrival at the market, firemen had difficulty in getting close to the spot of the fire as the pathway was blocked by shops.

The inflammable materials were also reported to have intensified the fire. The tyre section of the market suffered the most devastation.

As at the time of this report, no casualty was recorded but traders said valuables including fairly used tyres and spare parts worth millions of naira have been destroyed.
