Festus Akande, the Public Relations Officer for the Supreme Court, has stated that the fire outbreak that occurred on Monday morning, September 25, won’t have an effect on the presidential election petition.
Speaking during an interview on Arise TV this morning, Akande disclosed that an electrical fault was the cause of the fire outbreak.
“As a matter of fact, there’s no single connection, and it won’t affect anything in the court. This incident occurred in a chamber equipped with a computer and other equipment, as well as a functional library used by any justice occupying such chamber. The only thing that was affected were the books and computer equipment in the chamber.
Even the books are replaceable. Also, it has nothing to do with it because it was from an electrical fault, which could happen anywhere, and there are things that happen daily.”
TORI had reported earlier that a fire broke out in a section of the apex court earlier today.
