A section of the Supreme Court located at Federal Capital Territory, Abuja was today, Monday 25th September, 2023 gutted with fire.
However, it was learnt that workers had been evacuating vital documents and other things from the building to prevent them from getting burnt.
According to the Public Relations Officer for the Court, Mr. Festus Akande, the cause of the fire was electrical from one of the Chambers of the Justices and was put out with the use of fire extinguishers.
Akande added that the stories making the rounds on social media that there were casualties were fake news.
A source who chose to remain anonymous said the fire started around 6 am.
It was gathered that the cleaners on duty and some of the workers who resumed early for work detected the fire and raised the alarm.
The workers were said to have used the fire extinguishers in the building to combat the fire.
Three offices, including that of Justice Mohammed Saulawa, were reportedly affected by the fire.
