In the early hours of Wednesday 22nd September, 2021 a fire incident suspected to have been triggered by an electrical surge affected 3 offices on the 6th floor of the Broad Street wing of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) Headquarters.
Operatives of the NPA Fire Service Department immediately mobilized to the scene and promptly contained the fire.
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 says that it appreciates the prompt response and professionalism of the Authority’s Fire service and security departments and is assuring all stakeholders and the general public that no sensitive documents were lost and normalcy has been restored and that their operations have not been disrupted in any way.
