BREAKING: Presidency Speaks About ‘Fire Outbreak At Aso Rock’

Almost twenty-four hours after news of fire outbeak at Aso Villla went viral,Presidency has reacted.

CityNews Nigeria reports that presidency has denied that there was a fire incident of any sort inside the Aso Villa.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, in a statement, said there was no fire within the perimeter walls of the State House as speculated by the reports.

According to him, there was indeed a bush fire behind the fence of the ‘Villa’ Saturday night but the said inferno did not enter the premises of the State House, as it was effectively contained by firefighters.

Though it said investigations were ongoing on the source of the said fire, he said initial suspicion suggested cigarette stub light, which might have been dropped in the bush from the nearby express.

Shehu explained that the said inferno had no impact on any building, property or human within and around the State House.

“People in the country and even abroad have been expressing concerns over reports of a fire incident in Aso Rock Villa, the seat of the Nigerian government.

“I would like to clarify that there was no fire inside the Presidential Villa.
