The Supreme Court of Nigeria has been gutted by fire in the early hours of Monday.
Though, no casualty was reported yet, however, the fire outbreak has been significantly brought under control.
The heavy smoke which spiralled into the sky was seen by onlookers as staff of the apex court who came to work early, scampered for safety.
The inferno was said to have burnt a part of the court’s chambers before it was controlled.
Some onlookers who wanted to gain entrance into the complex where stopped by the security for reasons best known to them.
