Witnesses say a whole building was burnt

The Mobile Police Base, Squadron 38 in Akwanga Local Government Area of Nasarawa, was gutted by fire in the early hours of Monday, Abayomi Akeremale, Commissioner of Police in Nasarawa State, has confirmed.

An eyewitness who requested anonymity disclosed that a whole block behind the administrative building was burnt. 

He said the building was suspected to be the one that housed the ammunition and other sensitive equipment of the base, as there was heavy smoke enveloping the area. 

The state’s police commissioner however said that details of the incident would come later, adding, “I am already on my way to Akwanga to get more details and to know the extent of damage.”

He said although the fire has been put out, “I will be there myself for more details.”
