Abuja, April 16, 2024 – A potential disaster was averted at the UTC Shopping Plaza in Garki, Abuja, thanks to the prompt response and joint effort of the Nigerian Navy (NN) Firemen, the Federal Fire Service (FFS), and the National Defence College (NDC) Fire Service.

The incident, which occurred on April 15, began when an electrical spark in one of the shops led to a fire that threatened to engulf the entire plaza. Eyewitnesses quickly alerted emergency services as smoke began to billow from the building.

The NN Firemen, a specialized unit from the Naval Headquarters in Garki, were among the first responders on the scene. Working in coordination with the FFS and the NDC Fire Service, they managed to contain and eventually extinguish the fire before it could cause more extensive damage.

Commodore Aiwuyor Adams-Aliu, the Naval Director of Information, commended the quick action and teamwork of all the fire service personnel involved. “This incident showcases the critical role of inter-agency cooperation in managing emergencies effectively,” said Adams-Aliu.

Fortunately, no lives were lost in the incident, and property damage was minimized. The quick response not only prevented a potential catastrophe but also underscored the efficiency and readiness of Nigeria’s emergency services.
