Fire scare at Ebonyi govt house
There was palpable fear in Ebonyi state government house, Abakaliki Wednesday afternoon as a tanker caught slight fire after it encountered electricity wires close to the Protocol Unit.
The incident sent lots of panic among both workers and visitors who were in the government house environment during the period.
The tanker was halted close to the premises of the Governor’s office when passersby and security personnel posted to the government house raised alarm of slight fire at the top of the tanker.
The fire was immediately put out by the conductor attached to the tanker.
Normalcy however returned to the government house environment as those who had scampered for safety were seen returning to their duty posts.
A staff of the government house who did not want his name in print advised the present administration to ensure that all electricity cables are not within the reach of commuters and passersby to avoid future occurrences.
