Ebonyi-fireThe Street Reporters has gathered that a section of the office of the Special Assistant to Ebonyi State Governor on Petroleum Products pricing and Distribution located at ​the​ government house​, ​Abakaliki​,​ was on Friday gutted by fire.
The fire was, however, brought under control by some staff on duty who used the available fire extinguishers to ​quench the fire before it could do more damage.
A drama ensued between the State Fire Service officers and some Government House workers as the exit gate was shut against them when the government House workers insisted they should not take away the fire extinguishers as directed by leader of the team.
It took the intervention of a senior Accountant at the Government House for the gate to be opened.
A staff, Sunday Nweze, who used the available fire fighting facilities to ​extinguish​ the fire explained the squabble.
He said:“​W​e were here at the gate when people started shouting fire! Fire! And running around confused and aimlessly.”
“When I got there, I saw that fire had gutted a section of the office of the SA on Petroleum. I know how to operate the fire extinguishers, because I was trained on fire fighting by one a Senior Fire Man (SFM), Mr Benjamin Igbota”.
