Fani-Kayode Reacts To Supreme Court Fire Incident




Former Minister of Aviation, Fem Fani-Kayode, has expressed concern over the fire incident which occurred at the Supreme Court building in Abuja.

Recall that a fire outbreak on Monday morning occurred at the Supreme Court of Nigeria at Three Arms Zone in Abuja, destroying some parts of the federal institution.

Naija News gathered that the mysterious fire burnt down the offices of some justices and forced some occupants of the building to scamper for safety.

Speaking on the incident in a chat with Channels TV, the Public Relations Officer for the Court, Festus Akande, said the cause of the fire was electrical from one of the Chambers of the Justices and was put out with the use of fire extinguishers.

Akande added that the stories making the rounds on social media that there are casualties are fake news and should be disregarded by the general public.

He, however, stated that the fire incident would not affect the presidential election petition.

Reacting to the incident in a post via his X handle on Monday, Fani-Kayode said the fire outbreak is “ominous” and “sinister”.
