Press Release On Ikeja City Mall Fire Incident

Press statement sent to me by the management of the Ikeja City Mall about the fire incident at the mall this morning. See it below...
The management of the Ikeja City Mall is very grateful to the great people of Lagos State and the emergency services that responded to the fire incident that occurred this morning (15 January 2013) at about 11:15 in one of the stores, Mr. Price.
The fire, according to Mr. Steve Idornigie the Operations Manager of the ICM, Mr. Price store manager reported the incident to him and emergency staff responded immediately.
On what caused the fire, Mr. Steve said from preliminary investigations, it seems the fire emanated from an electric power point. However investigations, he said, are ongoing to ascertain the cause of the fire.

“The process of evacuation was swift,” he said. “The customers conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and allowed the emergency services people to do their work.”

“In terms of damage, no goods were lost neither was anyone injured. However some clothes got wet as a result of the water from the men of the Federal Fire Service. We would like to thank them for their professionalism and valiance, along with the men of Lagos State Emergency Service, National Emergency Agency, the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency and the Civil Defense.”

Mr. Idornigie assured the customers and tenants that Ikeja City Mall would be reopened for business at 3pm today.

Thank God no much loss. By the electrical power should be overhaul. It's worth investing on something better. Any electrIc stuff has spark or ignite is fake and substandard. Tech has advanced beyond that.

Ikeja City Mall has got good sprinklers. They activated immediately and contained the fire at source so in this respect, Ikeja City Mall is no differenct from Shoprite in South Africa!
No other shop suffered any damage at all. I know because I work there!
