A blaze has engulfed a portion of the Supreme Court.
As reported by TheCable, the fire initiated within the office of Ibrahim Saulawa, a Supreme Court Justice.
Sources confirm that Saulawa’s office has suffered extensive damage.
At the time of reporting, thick black smoke was still emanating from the building.
A source explained, “Smoke emerged from Justice Saulawa’s office. We attempted to extinguish the flames with an extinguisher but were unable to contain it.”
“Subsequently, we contacted the firefighters who arrived promptly. Through collaborative efforts, the situation is now under control.”
Furthermore, the source lamented that “everything” within Saulawa’s office was consumed.
Fortunately, the fire was contained within Saulawa’s chamber and did not spread to the offices of other justices.
