The Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Benue State, Rev. Fr. Dr. Hyacinth Iormem Alia, expressed his condolences to the victims of the Monday Market inferno that occurred on Sunday morning in Maiduguri, Borno State. The fire, which broke out around 2am, destroyed shops worth billions of naira and left many traders and customers displaced.

Fr. Alia, who is well known for his service to humanity, shared the message on his official social media handles shortly after the Governor of Borno State visited the site of the inferno to assess the extent of the damage caused by the fire. After the governor’s visit, Alia expressed his deepest sympathies to those affected and called on the government to come to their aid.

In a statement, Fr. Alia said, “My heart goes out to the victims of the devastating inferno that engulfed Maiduguri Monday Market. The tragedy has left me deeply saddened, and I stand in solidarity with the good people of Borno and those affected by this horrific event.”

“May they find strength and courage in the face of such immense loss, and may we all come together to support them during this difficult time.”

“Let us remember that even in the darkest of moments, our humanity and compassion can light the way towards healing and hope!”

The priest also praised the efforts of the firefighters, who worked tirelessly to contain the fire, and he thanked members of the public who offered their support to the victims.

“I want to thank the brave men and women of the fire service who responded quickly to the scene of the inferno and worked hard to put out the flames. I also want to thank the state government and members of the public who have already begun to offer their support to the victims. I urge everyone to continue to support one another during this difficult time,” he added.

Fr. Alia has been an active Catholic Priest, working to promote peace and unity among people of different religions and ethnicities. His message of hope and solidarity has resonated with many in the area, and his involvement in this crisis has further endeared him to the people. The Maiduguri Monday Market inferno has been described as one of the worst fire disasters in the city’s recent history, and it has left many people struggling to come to terms with their losses. The government has promised to provide support to those affected, and Fr. Alia’s voice of support and solidarity will no doubt go a long way in helping to rebuild the affected market.
