Social sharing

A storey building belonging to former Ebonyi State Commissioner for Solid Mineral Development, Chris Uchaji, was razed by fire on Tuesday.

The fire incident, which occurred at No. 13 Onor Street, Abakaliki, Ebonyi state capital, razed the storey building and other valuable properties worth millions of naira.

Uchaji, who spoke with newsmen shortly after the incident, said that he was at the stadium with his wife for morning exercise when he received a distress call from his security man that his family house was on fire.

According to him: “Early this morning I went for sports at the state stadium together with my wife and we were coming back when I received a call from my security man shouting, fire, fire.

“We quickly rushed in only to see many people on a rescue mission as the whole house had been engulfed with fire. I suspected it was due to an electrical spark and it started in my wife’s room, where my six-year-old daughter was sleeping.

“The intensity of the fire was high and it spread to other rooms, causing massive damage, but thank God no life was lost. I thank God for people’s goodwill and the fire service. Though the state fire service came here, their water finished early, but with the intervention of federal firefighters, they were able to control the fire.”
