A fire incident in Ilorin, Kwara State destroyed a six-bedroom flat belonging to one Alhaja Kadijat Suleiman.

The timely intervention of the Disaster Management Unit of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and men of the Kwara State Fire Service, prevented further destruction by the fire at Binuyo Compound, off Sabo Line, Isale Maliki area of Ilorin.

An eyewitness account claimed that, the fire on Friday completely razed a six bedroom flat belonging to Alhaja Khadijat Sulaiman with property worth millions of Naira destroyed in the inferno.

Spokesman of the NSCDC in the State, Babawale Zaid Afolabi, explained that the fire outbreak was reportedly caused by electric spark largely due to substandard cable used during the electrical connection of the building.
