Fire Guts Kano Police Command Headquarters

The headquarters of the Kano State Police Command, Bompai, Nasarawa Local Government Area, has been gutted by fire on Saturday.

It was gathered that the fire affected the entire upper floor of the one-storey building and destroyed several offices except that of the state Police Commissioner, Mamman Dauda.

The Provost’s Office, that of the Deputy Commissioner of police, and others were damaged by the inferno which was said to have started around 2 pm.

The men of the State fire service were promptly deployed to fight the fire and put it out to prevent it from causing further damage.

“Today, Saturday 14, January 2023 at 11:00 am, we woke up to this bad incidence of fire outbreak at the Police Headquarters in Bompai on the first floor,” the spokesman of the Kano State Police Command DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa said.

“No life was lost. Our records are also intact and those we have locked are also intact because the fire did not affect the area they are kept. We are suspecting that the incident happened due to some electrical problems but we have already commenced an investigation.

“You can see the top part of the building has been burnt. It is only the Commissioner’s office that has not been affected as well as those on the ground floor.”
