BEVERLY HILLS, July 24, (THEWILL) – A section of Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s office located in Abeere, Oshogbo was on Monday evening gutted by fire.
The fire which started at around 5:00 pm and was put out shortly after by firefighters from the Osun State fire service.
The State government in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Adelani Baderinwa said the fire was caused by a power surge which affected the air conditioner inside the governor’s office.
Baderinwa added it was a minor fire outbreak as no life or document was lost to the fire outbreak adding that the governor wasn’t in the office when the incident occurred.
“Not a single document or equipment was destroyed and nobody was hurt. We reiterate that every document in the governor’s office is intact.
“It is not a serious fire outbreak.”
Baderinwa said the governor’s office was the only section of the state government secretariat affected by the fire.
He said it is regrettable that the electricity suppliers have been persistently unable to regulate the supply of power to meet the necessary standard.
