The blaze engulfed the top section of a building in the popular Balogun Market.

Firefighters were reportedly struggling to approach as access to the site was blocked by market stalls.

Goods are being thrown out of the windows to save stock, while a man on a roof is risking his life trying to put out the fire himself.
