The private residence of Ibe Kachikwu, minster of state for petroleum resources, caught fire on Sunday evening, TheCable understands.
The house is located in Asokoro, Abuja.
The fire started in his bedroom as a result of a suspected electrical fault to the air conditioners, sources in the know said.
“Kachikwu was not at home when it happened, but thankfully the fire service reacted quickly and put out the fire before things could go out of hand,”
Nobody was hurt in the incident.
I noticed two Fire trucks in front of the Ecowas Secretariat Yesterday Night and was wondering what they were doing there, a resident said.
