Tension As Fire Guts Section Of Supreme Court

A section of the Supreme Court complex is reportedly on fire.

NIGERIACRIME gathered that the fire engulfed a side of the judges’ chamber of the apex court.

Details about the incident are still sketchy as of the time of filling this report.

The incident was confirmed by the Director of Press and Information of the Supreme Court of Nigeria, Dr Festus Akande.

“The fire has since been put out. There was no casualty,” Akande said.

Meanwhile, the Federal Fire Service operatives have put out the fire, and everything has returned to normal.

In another news, gunmen have killed a Fulani leader in Plateau State, Adamu Gabdo.

It was learnt that Gabdo, who is the Ardo of Panyam in the Mangu Local Government Area of the state, was shot dead by his assailants in the locality on Saturday night.

The state Chairman of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, Nuru Abdullahi, confirmed the killing to journalists in Jos on Sunday.

According to Abdullahi, the 70-year-old Fulani chief was attacked by the gunmen while returning from a visit to the District Head of Panyam.

The Spokesman for the Plateau State Police Command, Alabo Alfred, could not be reached for comment on the killing.

But the Transition Implementation Committee Chairman of Mangu Local Government Area, Markus Artu, confirmed the incident in a statement made available to newsmen in Jos.

He described the killing as “barbaric and an act of criminality” by enemies of Plateau who are against the peace being enjoyed in the state.

“The entire Mangu Council authority has distanced itself from the incident. The people of Mangu have since resolved to live in peace with each other, irrespective of tribe or religion and would not allow anyone to come between them.

“The incident was a deliberate act by hoodlums who are bent on throwing the council area into another round of chaos at a time when relative peace has been achieved and the people are returning to their ancestral homes due to many efforts made by the state government under the leadership of state Governor, Barr. Caleb Mutfwang,” the council chairman stated.
