The fire broke out inside a facility in the medical center at around 11 p.m. and consumed blocks of the building housing the secretariats of the Association of Residence Doctors (ARD) Welfare Scheme in the hospital.
A source from the hospital told newsmen that the building being used by members of the Senior Staff Association at the facility was also razed by the fire.
“The heavy fire razed the building which was being used by the ARD as a Welfare Scheme and business units inside the federal hospital. Lots of properties were burnt into ashes, including photocopy machines, air conditioners, electronics and some very important files.
"The late night fire started around 11 on Sunday night and caused a panic among the people in the hospital, as they were very afraid of the heavy inferno. In fact, the firefighters could not get to the hospital on time, but as a result of self-help, we were able to ensure that the fire did not extend to other buildings,” the source said.
"The building was razed on Sunday night and it destroyed the reception area with properties worth millions of naira gone to the heavy fire,” he revealed.
