No Fire Outbreak Inside Aso Rock Presidential Villa – Garba Shehu

Presidential Aso Rock Villa, Abuja

Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu has said that there was no fire outbreak in the presidential villa as was being published in media.

In a statement today, March 7, Garba Shehu emphasised that there was no fire inside the Presidential Villa.

“In the evening of Saturday, March 6, a fire broke out burning shrubs between the outer wire fence and walls surrounding the Villa, precisely in the area between the Villa and the Barracks, towards Asokoro.

“The fire, as being speculated, might have started from a passerby dropping a burning cigarette. The Federal Fire Service will ascertain the reason for it when they complete their investigation.

“It suffices to say that this bush fire, which started and ended outside the perimeter walls of the Villa, was seamlessly contained by fire stations of the State House and the one nearby from the Federal Fire Service. No loss of life, no loss whatsoever to building and property was recorded.
