The police command in Kano says the Divisional Police Office in Nasarawa LGA has been gutted by fire.

Police commissioner Hussaini Gumel said on Monday that the incident occurred in the early hours of Monday.

‘’At about 5.45 a.m., the divisional police headquarters was engulfed by fire, and a major part of the building was burned down completely. This is in spite of prompt response by the state fire service,’’ he said.

Mr Gumel said an investigation was ongoing to unravel the cause of the fire.

“The area has been cordoned off to prevent intrusion by onlookers and miscreants. The arms and ammunition in the office are very safe.

“The divisional police officer is currently sorting out some of the affected documents,” he said.
