NO life was reportedly lost as fire gutted the first-floor administrative block of the Kano Police Command headquarters, Kano State.
The incident, which is suspected to be from an electrical plug, occurred at the wee hours of Saturday.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Command, DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, confirmed the incident.
He said: “Today, Saturday 14, January 2023 at 11:00a.m, we woke up to this bad incident of fire outbreak at the Police Headquarters in Bompai on the first floor.
“No life was lost. Our records are also intact and those we have locked are also intact because the fire did not affect the area they are kept.
“We are suspecting that the incident happened due to some electrical problems but we have already commenced an investigation.
“You can see the top part of the building has been burnt. It is only the Commissioner’s office that has not been affected as well as those on the ground floor.”
