The FCT Fire Service Management has confirmed that the private residence of the Minister of State for FCT, Mariya Mahmoud, at No. 9, Justice Roseline Ukeji Close, Asokoro was gutted by fire.

The Acting Director of the FCT Fire Service, Abiola Adebayo, who confirmed the incident said that the first floor of the building was completely razed, however said no life was lost.

Adebayo explained that the fire started at about 9:45am, and officers of the Service arrived at the scene some minutes after 10am, to ensure that the fire which had already engulfed the entire first floor, was curtailed to prevent it from spreading.

The fire was discovered a few minutes to ten, maybe around 9:45am. We received a running call around thirteen minutes after ten, so we followed the person who came to call us to the fire scene.All of them were on the ground floor. They did not discover the fire on time, and they didn’t call the Fire Service. It was a running call that came to us. From our investigation, they say they called the Federal Fire Service, but they didn’t respond on time, that’s when the running call came to our office”.

On reaching there, we saw that the first floor, the upper floor were completely engulfed in fire. So what we could do is just to prevent the fire from spreading to the ground floor, and the adjacent structures. No life was lost.”

The media aide to the minister of state for FCT, Mr. Austine Elemue also confirmed the incidence, noting that vital documents and credentials were lost during the incidence.

The Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike, alongside top management team of FCTA, and Area Councils chairmen have visited the minister to sympathize with her.
