Police headquarters raze by fire in Kano

The Kano state Police Command headquarters, Bompai, has been gutted by fire.

A source told Radio Nigeria that the fire started on Saturday afternoon from the Provost Office and spread to Finance Department, Conference Room, PPRO Office, Assistant Commissioner (Admin) Office and Deputy Commissioner (Admin) Office, among others.

According to the source, the offices at the top floor of the 56-year-old building were engulfed by the blaze, except the office of the commissioner.

Efforts to get the reaction of the police proved abortive as the PPRO, Kano command, was not reachable by phone at the time of filing this report.
