On Thursday, a component of the Federal Capital Territory Administration’s (FCTA) ICT Unit was destroyed by fire.
According to Muhammad Sule, Director of Information and Communication, the event was caused by a power spike at 8 p.m.
The FCT Fire Service and the Federal Fire Service worked together to put out the fire, which had spread to the server room.
The emergency response team, assisted by security personnel on duty, brought the situation under control in roughly 15 minutes.
The FCTA management assured Abuja residents that the incident would not disrupt normal operations.
“There is no cause for alarm. The incident will not in any way hinder the smooth operations of the ICT Unit nor any function,” Sule said.
The statement also praised the police and fire departments for successfully putting out the fire in such a short amount of time.
