A section of the Supreme Court was on fire on Monday morning, though no casualty was recorded, the court said.

The Public Relations Officer for the Court, Mr Festus Akande, who spoke to Channels Television on Telephone says the cause of the fire was electrical from one of the Chambers of the Justices and was put out with the use of fire extinguishers.

Akande added that the stories making the rounds on social media that there are casualties are “fake news”.

A source who chose to remain anonymous said the fire started around 6 am.

It was gathered that the cleaners on duty and some of the workers who resumed early for work detected the fire and raised the alarm.
