BREAKING: Fire Enters Kogi State Assembly

The fire incident which engulfed the Kogi State Assembly at about 8 am on Monday, October 10, 2022, leaving the assembly gallery completely burnt.

 The cause of the fire incident was unknown at the time of filing this report on Monday morning,

the Speaker of the House, Prince Mathew Kolawole, while speaking to journalists at the assembly complex said the house will allow security agencies to investigate the incident.

He, however, said this would not stop the assembly from performing its duty as the resolution of the house concerning Dangote Cement Plc stands.

The Speaker of the Assembly said that he suspects sabotage but fell short of where the suspected sabotage might be from.

Asked whether it might have been linked with the recent happening between the Assembly and Dangote group, he said that that is left to the security to determine.

“We should leave security people to do their work and give us a report going forward,” the speaker said.

However,a source who do not want his name in print said he suspected explosion but couldn’t say who might be responsible.
