Supreme Court fire won’t affect election petition

The Supreme Court has provided an update on the fire incident which destroyed a section of the apex court early Monday.

The spokesperson to the Supreme Court, Festus Akande has clarified that the fire incident has no connection and won’t have any effect on the presidential election petition.

Credible News earlier reported that a section of the Supreme Court complex situated at the Three-Arms-Zone, Abuja, was on fire on Monday morning.

Speaking on Arise TV, Akande stated that the fire outbreak won’t affect the operations of the court.

“As a matter of fact, there’s no single connection and it won’t affect anything in the court. This incident occurred in a chamber equipped with a computer and other equipment as well as a functional library used by any justice occupying such chamber.

“The only thing that was affected were the books and computer equipment in the chamber. Even the books are replaceable.
“Also, it has nothing to do with it because it was from an electrical fault, which could happen anywhere, and there are things that happen daily”, Akande explained.
