A section of Ahmadu Bello University’s Senate Building at the Samaru Main Campus, Zaria, has been gutted by fire, a statement has said.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria , a small room on the ground floor of the Senate building housing an electrical Distribution Board (DB) was affected.

Malam Auwalu Umar, the university’s Director of Public Affairs, confirmed the incident in a statement issued on Friday.

Umar stated that the fire began around 4:15 p.m. and that the cause could not be determined immediately, adding that no injuries or casualties had been reported.

The fire also consumed the Distribution Board and some obsolete public address systems, he said.

“The timely intervention of the University firefighters and security personnel saved the situation. In fact, power has since been restored to the building,” he said.

The statement said that the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Kabiru Bala, was at the scene of the incident along with some management staff and hundreds of sympathisers.

Furthermore, the university management has raised a team to unravel the circumstances surrounding the cause of the fire, it stated.
