JUST IN: Fire destroys Kogi Assembly
Kogi State House of Assembly complex has been engulfed in an early morning inferno.
The fire on Monday destroyed the roof of the Chamber, causing extensive damage to the floor of the house located at Crusher Area, Lokoja.
The Speaker of the house, Mathew Kolawole, and the state security Adviser, Commander Jerry Omodara, were among the early callers at the assembly complex.
The cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
The Speaker of the Assembly said that he suspects sabotage but fell short of where the suspected sabotage might be from.
“We should leave security people to do their work and give us a report going forward,” the speaker said.
