The incident happened about a week after all members of staff of the agency were directed to resume work.

Although the federal government asked junior civil servants to remain at home as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown, the agency asked its staff to resume to carry out essential duties.

The fire outbreak is just the latest of many that have gutted government offices in Abuja recently.

Only last month, a building housing the office of the accountant-general of the federation (AGF) caught fire.

In 2018, the Federal Fire Service (FFS) said Nigeria lost about N5 trillion to fire incidents in four years.
