The incident was confirmed to newsmen by the spokesperson for the Federal Capital Territory, FCT police command, DSP Josephine Adeh.

Adeh further disclosed that police operatives, firefighters and other emergency responders all responded swiftly and were on the ground to put out the fire and ensure minimal damage to individuals and properties.

Police Killed As Gunmen Invade PVC Collection Centre In Imo

Meanwhile, an officer of the Nigeria Police Force was reportedly killed on Saturday when gunmen invaded a Permanent Voter Card (PVC) collection centre in Imo state.

Reports obtained by Naija News on Sunday morning revealed that the assailants stormed the centre when residents were queueing up for their card collection ahead of the 2023 general elections.

An official of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Chienyere Chijioke-Osuji, told The Nation that the incident occurred in the state’s Ahiazu Mbaise Local Government Area.

The event was said to have caused tension in the area as residents reportedly fled for safety.

Chijioke-Osuji confirmed the attack by saying that some people sustained injuries while a police officer was shot dead.

“It happened at Ahiazu Mbaise today. A policeman was gunned down, not an INEC staff member. No corps member was wounded, though my AEO Ops, Barrister Kingsley Ohiri, and the CLO of the LG dislocated their leg and arm while jumping over the fence,” the news platform quoted Chijioke-Osuji saying.

She added: “Please reach out to Barrister Ohiri. Glory be to God for saving our lives. It’s really unfortunate we lost the chief security officer to the LGA.”
