According to reports reaching Oyogist.com, the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA)Headquarters on Broad street, Lagos was on Wednesday September 22 gutted by fire just few months after it was set on fire by hoodlums during the #EndSARS protest.

It was gathered that the fire which resulted from an electrical surge, affected three offices on the 6th floor of the building but no life was lost.

The news of this sad incident was confirmed by the General Manager, Corporate and Strategic Communication of NPA, Olaseni Alakija.

According to him, the NPA Fire Service Department immediately mobilised to the scene and promptly contained the fire.

The affected floor had since been cordoned off and investigations are ongoing in line with safety protocols.

Alakija said; “The fire affected one office where 2 desk tops, tables, chairs and other furniture were lost. Two other adjoining offices were affected by smoke and soot.

“The Management of the Authority appreciates the prompt response and professionalism of the Authority’s Fire service and security departments and wishes to assure all stakeholders and the general public that no sensitive documents were lost and normalcy has been restored and that our operations have not been disrupted in anyway.”
