Fire Guts offices of Supreme Court 

A section of the building of the Supreme Court of Nigeria has been gutted by fire.

The incident began around 6 am, originating from Chamber 5 on the fourth floor of the Supreme Court building, specifically within the Justices’ Chambers.

Although no casualty was reported, the fire outbreak has been significantly brought under control.

Three offices, including that of Justice Mohammed Saulawa were touched by the fire.

The heavy smoke which spiralled through the sky was seen by onlookers, as staff of the apex court who came to work early, scampered for safety.

According to the court’s public relations officer, Festus Akande, the fire started in one of the chambers of the justices and was caused by a power surge.

The source of the inferno could not be ascertained but it was believed to have been caused by power surge.
