The Management of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has said that a minor fire incident at its headquarters did neither claim any lives not destroyed any vital documents.
The NYSC spokesman Eddy Megwa, Director, Press and Public Relations, confirmed that a sudden fire outbreak occurred at the Directorate Headquarters of the National Youth Service Corps but was promptly curtailed by the FCT and Federal Fire Service Departments.
The fire incident which started about 7:30am on Friday 4th November, 2022 was limited to the 3rd floor of the six-storey building edifice which is occupied by Planning Research and Statistics as well as General Service Department affected only a particular room with electronic gadgets.
Fortunately enough, no life was lost and all vital documents were promptly evacuated and safeguarded, Megwa said.
“The Management of the Scheme heartily appreciates the Federal and FCT Fire Service Departments for their prompt response which minimized the effect of the fire incident.
“Management also appreciates all security agencies for the invaluable roles they played during the unfortunate incident.” He said.
