Flood: FEMA cautions FCT residents against flashpoints

The Public Relations Officer, Alhaji Saidu Mohammed, made this disclosure to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in an interview on Tuesday in Kano.

Mohammed, however, said that 11 lives were lost during the period while property valued at six million naira was also destroyed.

He said the service responded to 20 rescue calls and five false alarms from residents during the month under review.

Mohammed identified the careless handling of cooking gas, use of inferior electrical materials, use of boiling rings and improper wiring as major causes of fire incidents in the state.

He urged the public to patronise qualified electricians and use quality electrical materials and monitor the use of cooking gas in their homes to avert fire outbreaks. (NAN)
