On Friday, December 9, a fire started out at the Lagos State University (LASU) building in Ojo, Lagos.
No less than seven workplaces were impacted by the fire, which was allegedly started by a power surge.
All of the impacted departments included the Department of Internal Audit, the Bursar’s office, Risk Insurance & Investment, Bursar Mini Registry & Reception, Payroll & Pension Unit, Budget & Budgetary Control, and the Deputy Director’s Office.
The Department of Internal Audit (Property management unit) office, which is positioned on the fourth floor of the building, was the location of the fire breakout, according to a preliminary assessment from the state emergency management agency (LASEMA).
Dr. Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, the Permanent Secretary of LASEMA, stated that “although no lives were lost, the Directorate office was severely damaged by the fire”.
Oke-Osanyintolu: “The fire damage has extended to some of the ceiling claddings. The fire was promptly put out by the Lagos Fire Service and Agency responders.
“A post-disaster risk assessment is ongoing with a view to identifying any potential hazards and secondary incident.”
The post-catastrophe risk assessment found that “there is no threat of any probable ignition to any of the offices,” according to the LASEMA head.
“The members of staff were sensitized on safety and precautionary measures needed to avoid such incident,” he added.Join our Telegram Channel for Updates!!!
