Makoko community in Lagos recorded a fresh fire outbreak on Sunday evening.
Instagram user Faith (@fabreke) posted a video of the burning shanties at about 6.35PM today.
Just saw this on my way to work on 3rd mainland bridge, had to stop to get this on video. Time check: 6:35pm…
these are shanties that several people live in…oko baba at ebute meta I think it’s called…this is devastating for the thousands of people who live here for sure.
How this fire started I don’t know but it doesn’t look like it’s going off anytime soon…I feel so bad for the people who have been rendered homeless and I hope no life is lost…hopefully fire services get there soon enough to help….
