The general manager who attributed the recent fire outbreak in Monday market,  Maiduguri to poor planning said the development has forced the state government to revisit the original master plan of the state in the interest of all. 

He said with the expansion of Ahmadu Bello Way and Magoram Road dualizations, all the illegal traders alone on the road have been directed to vacate,  adding that many shops are also likely to be affected at the Monday market by the review of the Master plan.

Gana Mustapha however explained that Eight hundred million naira has been given by the Borno State government and  2 billion naira by the North East Development Commission to victims of the fire outbreak by the state government to reduce their pain.
