There was a minor fire incident at the Headquarters of the Corporate Affairs Commission(CAC) today which was quickly extinguished by the men of the fire service. Just last week, there was a fire outbreak at the Office of the Accountant-General of the federations office in Abuja.
According to the Punch, the fire started in the morning at the seven-storey building located in Maitama Abuja the same street as the National Youth Service Corps and the Nigeria Incentives Risk-Based Sharing for Agriculture lending. Alhaji Garba Abubakar the Register- General of the Corporate Affairs Commission confirmed the incident to newsmen as he said no loss of document or lives during the fire outbreak. He commended the efforts of the Federal Fire Service as they were quick to mobilize and put off the fire before a major outbreak could occur.
This is coming at a time when the Federal government has placed a mandatory 14 days lockdown due to the Coronavirus. So one may ask, what really is the cause of the fire outbreak as this is the second in a matter of week.
