Fire breaks out at NPA headquarters

Properties worth millions of naira were on Wednesday destroyed in a fire outbreak at the Headquarters of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), on Broad street, Lagos.
The fire was said to have been triggered off by an electrical surge.

It affected three offices on the 6th floor of the building but no life was lost.

Some staff, who pleaded anonymity, said they were just settling down for the day’s job when the fire started.

The staff said those on the affected floor were asked to stay at a point on the ground floor where head count of those on duty was taken by the safety officers.

General Manager, Corporate and Strategic Communication of NPA, Olaseni Alakija, who confirmed the incident, said officials of the NPA Fire Service Department immediately mobilised to the scene and promptly contained the fire.
