Spokesperson for the ministry Idang Alibi told Daily Trust that
it was a normal fire outbreak that was caused a faulty electric
wiring at a section of the building.
Alibi said no one was hurt during the incident as it was not too serious, adding that it was not a case of sabotage.
“Nobody was hurt and nobody died,” Alibi said.
He said the minister was not at home when the incident occurred as the fire was contained within few minutes.
