Lagos State Fire Service Did Not Use Buckets To Quench The Balogun Market Fire.


For some weird reason, some Nigerians love to post bad information about their country. What's worse is that the bad information that these people post is usually either false, or misinterpreted due to their ignorance (remember the thread about mounted police, grass and trucks?)


Most times these people do not realise that the nonsense that they post will have an effect on them.



There was a fire at Balogun Market yesterday. The Lagos State Fire Service, the Union Bank Fire Service and Julius Berger turned out to battle the blaze. They used water cannons, snorkels and chemicals to tackle the conflagration.

However, the headline news to some crazy people was that the Lagos State Fire Service was using buckets of water to fight the fire.

Is this true?

Of course not!

This nonsense began with a video of a man on a rooftop. The man was pouring buckets of water on the burning building (a very dangerous act). It looked like the man was wearing some sort of uniform, but he was not wearing the uniform of the Lagos State Fire Service or the Federal Fire Service.

The man might have been a private security guard who was trying to prevent the fire from spreading to the building that he was guarding, I don't know, but he was not wearing a uniform of any of the government services and he was certainly not wearing the uniform of either the state or federal fire service, but the news that went viral was that the Lagos State Fire Service was fighting the fire with buckets of water.


And now, a notorious British shock jock and racist has picked on that story and told people that criticise British fire services to thank God that they are not in Nigeria. This is accompanied by a video of the man throwing buckets of water at the fire.


I'll post videos and pictures tonight.


There was a fire at Balogun Market on Tuesday. It was a huge blaze.

A video of a man that was throwing buckets of water at the fire soon went viral. The people that shared and spread the video claimed that the man was a member of the Lagos State Fire Service.

Here is the video and pictures of the man.
