Nwafor said, “There was a fire incident this morning. Between 9:12am  to 9:30am we started perceiving odour like a burnt odour, so what we did was to look for the place. It was in the department they call voter registry.

“Most of us that were around that time had to use the normal fire extinguisher to try to stop the fire and at the same time we called the fire service and the fire service came, when the fire service came the NEMA came, as I am talking to you now the fire has been quenched so no more fire now.

The ICT Director, who admitted that only office equipment was damaged, however said that the cause of the fire outbreak was yet to be established and that preliminary investigations would be carried out to ascertain the real cause of the incident.
