The fire broke out around noon, and personnel of the Federal Fire Service had already mobilized to the scene in an effort to out out the inferno.

The INEC director of publicity and voter education, Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, who confirmed the incident, said the fire only affected the office of the director of ”election and party monitoring” in the building.

”Yes, there was a fire incident. Fortunately, we have a fire unit in the office. It was put out,” he said.

”Some equipment and correspondence were affected. But no sensitive material was affected.”

The cause of the fire is being investigated and expected to be made public in due course.

This is coming barely one week after the office of the Accountant General of the Federation in Abuja was razed by fire.
