Recall there have been a disturbing number of fire outbreaks across government office complexes in the country and this incident adds to the series of ugly fire outbreaks.
Detailing the series of fire outbreaks in the country, on the 8th of April, the Treasury House, a building that houses the office of the Accountant-General of the Federation was gutted by fire. It took the efforts of the fire servicemen before the fire could be put off.
The cause of the fire outbreak was reported to be an electrical fault from a faulty air conditioner in the building.
The fire was also put off with the help of Firefighters.
The next government office to be hit by the strange fire outbreaks was the INEC office in Abuja which also went up in flames just some days after the other outbreaks.
The major parts of the office affected in the outbreak were the Election and Party Monitoring Department and the Media Centre.
The outbreak was not really catastrophic as the building is an annex and completely detached from the main building.
