  • Fire has again gutted NPA Headquarters in Lagos.

EKOHOTBLOG reports that 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 State.

It was gathered that the fire outbreak was triggered off by an electrical surge.

It was further learnt that the inferno affected three offices on the sixth floor of the six-storey building.

As gathered by EKOHOTBLOG, the incident was confirmed by the General Manager, Corporate and Strategic Communication of NPA, Olaseni Alakija.

The General Manager noted that officials of the NPA Fire Service Department were immediately mobilised to the scene and promptly contained the fire.

He added that in line with safety protocols, the affected floor had since been cordoned off, saying investigations were ongoing to ascertain the actual cause of the fire outbreak.

“The fire affected one office where 2 desktops, tables, chairs, and other furniture were lost. Two other adjoining offices were affected by smoke and soot.
