Barely 24 hours after a Mobil Petrol station in Awka went up in flames, another petrol station, Jezco on Friday evening caught fire.
No reason has been given for the outbreak of the fire, just as it is not clear yet if there were casualties.
Chief firefighter in Anambra State, Martin Agbili confirmed the incident. He said his organisation has been alerted, and that his men are already on ground, fighting to extinguish the fire.
“Yes, there is fire at Jezco filling station now. We have been alerted, and our men are on ground,” he said.
Jezco filling station, a state of the art facility was opened just some months ago. It is owned by famous Anambra businessman and manufacturer of Jezco engine oil.
