In a similar fire story, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that traders at the Odawna Market in Circle, a suburb of Accra who were affected by the Wednesday morning inferno have made demands to NADMO.

In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ghanaweb, the Odawna market traders admonished authorities of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) not to compensate them with food items.

According to them, they wanted to be given cash in place of their properties and wares that were lost in the fire.

“When our items got burnt last year, NADMO only distributed rice, oil, soap and blanket. We are not accepting these items again. If they dare bring it, here again, we’ll beat them up,” one victim is reported to have said.

Some affected persons also lamented the fact that they took loans from financial institutions to restock their shops because of the pending Christmas celebration but were now left with nothing due to the November 18 fire.
