A wing of Nigeria's apex court, the Supreme Court complex was engulfed by fire on Monday morning.
It’s situated at the Three-Arm-Zone in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
The fire, which started around 7am, caused panic among staff members of the court who ran to safety.
Though no human casualty was recorded, however, it was not clear whether sensitive documents and files were destroyed by the early morning fire.
It was gathered that the fire was probably caused by an electrical malfunction in one of the offices within the administrative wing of the court.
It’s said that three offices belonging to Justices including that of Justice Mohammed Saulawa were burnt by the fire before it was eventually put off.
