Fire has gutted the server room of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Unit of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) in Abuja.

The Director, Information and Communication, FCTA, Muhammad Sule, made this known via a statement issued on Friday, May 19.

Sule stated that the fire incident was as a result of electric power surge at about 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 18.

He said the inferno, which partially affected the server room, was contained in less than 15 minutes by the officers of the Federal and FCT fire services, and security operatives on duty.

The FCTA official added: “The Administration wishes to assure its clientele that the incident will not in any way interfere with its daily operations as there exists adequate redundancy.

“To this end, there is no cause for alarm as the incident will not in any way hinder the smooth operations of the ICT Unit nor any function of the Administration.

“The Administration wishes to use this medium to commend the prompt intervention of the gallant officers of the FCT and Federal Fire Service officials for their prompt response and action.”
