We received reports that there has been a fire outbreak in Mr. Price, one of the many malls inside the Ikeja City Mall in Lagos.
The cause of the inferno was not immediately ascertained, but the fire started at about 11am and caused panic among shoppers. Sources say that the Lagos State Fire Service, which has one of their offices situated behind the mall, responded promptly and the fire is being dealt with.
Mr. Price – where shoppers purchase clothes and other body wears – is located close to Entrance 1 of the mall.
The entire mall had been evacuated as at the time of filing in this report.
We will provide updates as we get them.
