Fire guts Katsina House of Assembly complex
The Katsina House of Assembly was on Wednesday burnt in an overnight fire incident.
It was gathered that an assembly staff, who wanted to tidy up the chamber on Wednesday morning, opened its doors only to find out that the whole place had been gutted and raised the alarm.
Members of the Assembly were said to have held plenary sessions inside the chamber.
The House Deputy Chief Whip, Salisu Rimaye, said the root cause of the fire incident is unknown, adding that a team of electricians had begun processes to ascertain its cause.
According to him, the fire was discovered when the clerk of the house instructed the Sergeant at Arm to go and clean up the chamber.
Rimaye disclosed that the fire extinguishers in the assembly were initially used to curtail the fire before men of the state fire service joined in putting it out.
He added that no life was lost in the fire incident.
