It would be recalled that, on April 17, a part of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) went up in flames.
Nine days earlier, some offices at the Accountant General’s office was burnt.
Just two days before, there was a similar outbreak at the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC).
Last October, fire engulfed a part of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS). All incidents occurred in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
