Supreme Court speaks on presidential election petition after fire outbreak 



Fire engulfs Supreme court complex

Festus Akande, the Public Relations Officer of the Supreme Court, has said the fire incident that occurred on Monday morning has no connection with and won’t have any effect on the presidential election petition.

A section of the Supreme Court complex in Abuja’s Three-Arm Zone caught fire this morning, Chronicle NG reports.

Speaking during an interview with journalists on Monday, Akande stated that the fire outbreak won’t affect anything in the Supreme Court.

He said, “As a matter of fact, there’s no single connection, and it won’t affect anything in the court.

“This incident occurred in a chamber equipped with a computer and other equipment, as well as a functional library used by any justice occupying such chamber.


“The only thing that was affected were the books and computer equipment in the chamber. Even the books are replaceable.

“Also, it has nothing to do with it because it was from an electrical fault, which could happen anywhere, and there are things that happen daily.”
