“The incident is being investigated right now to find out the cause of the outbreak,” she said in a statement Tuesday Morning.

“The fire department, in collaboration with the Lagos State Fire Department and other security agencies however responded swiftly by curtailing the spread of the fire, as normalcy is being restored already.”

A staff of the agency who spoke to PREMIUM TIMES on condition of anonymity said the fire affected “some important parts of the (headquarters) building”.

The source, however, said the cause is still unknown.
