A victim, Malam Ibrahim Labaran Nakyauta, who lost 12 out of 14 shops to the fire inside the badly damaged Gidan Labaran, expressed fears that the genuine victims could be sidelined if all manner of persons are registered as victims, saying if that was allowed to happen, the goal of the exercise could be defeated.

He appealed to the fire committee to thoroughly scrutinize every claimant before compensation was paid in order that the genuine beneficiaries would not be left out.

 In a related development, the Association of Bureau de Change Operators of Nigeria (ABCON) has presented a cheque of N2million to the victims of the Kwari fire disaster as part of its humanitarian services.

Presenting the cheque, the National President of ABCON, Dr Emmanuel Balogun, said the donation was intended to assist the traders and advised them to take necessary measures to prevent future occurrence by switching off all electrical appliances after market hours, while he also called on government to provide a fire station in the market.

The cheque was received on behalf of the victims by the National President of the Textiles Traders Association, Dr Bature Abdulaziz, who thanked ABCON for coming to the aid of its members.

The ABCON team was accompanied to Kano by the leadership of the association from the six geo-political zones in the country.
