Fire outbreak at Nigerian Ports Authority HQ
The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) Head Quarters Office in the early hours of Wednesday 22nd September, 2021, experienced a fire incident suspected to have been triggered by an electrical surge.
A statement by Authority said the fire affected 3 offices on the 6th floor of the Broad Street wing of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) Headquarters.
It said that operatives of the NPA Fire Service Department immediately mobilized to the scene and promptly contained the fire.
The statement added that “In line with safety protocols, the affected floor has since been cordoned off and investigations are ongoing to ascertain the actual cause of the fire.
“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 therefore appreciated the prompt response and professionalism of the Authority’s Fire service and security departments and assured 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.
