Fire Trucks Abandoned in Abuja
By Philip Nwelih and Fidelis Oseghale
Eight hi-tech fire–fighting trucks have been left abandoned at the Package B of the M.K.O. Abiola Stadium (formerly known as National Stadium in Abuja). The trucks were spotted by Nigeria Info roving correspondent, Fidelis Oseghale.
Some of the workers who pleaded anonymity told our correspondent that the fire trucks, which are not in good working condition, have been parked there for over twenty-four months.
Efforts to ascertain why the trucks were parked proved unsuccessful as relevant authorities claimed ignorance of their existence. They also promised to inquire and get back to Nigeria Info.
On Thursday, there was a fire outbreak at a commercial bank near Kubwa. There have also been several cases of fire incidents across the country in the last few months
More details later.
