JUST IN: Fire Razes Abuja Residential Building

On Friday night, a residential structure in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) neighborhood of Jabi caught fire.

As of the time of publication, it was unknown what caused the fire at the structure on Patrick O. Bokkor Crescent. Firefighters, on the other hand, were seen attempting to control the situation.

Nobody was killed, according to eyewitness accounts.

However, the situation in Jabi deteriorated when some hoodlums attacked the firefighters and destroyed their firefighting equipment. As a result, the operatives withdrew from the area while police reinforcements arrived.

“Men of the Federal Fire Service were mobbed by residents of the area. Their firefighting trucks were vandalized and so they had to pull out. We in the FCT Fire Service also pulled out. We have called for police reinforcement and would soon go back when the police are able to secure the area”, said spokesman of the FCT Fire Service, Ibrahim Mohammed Tauheed.

It was gathered that about seven fire trucks were already deployed to put out the inferno at the Jabi apartment, a development which made response to the filling station fire, slow.
