The personal residence of the outgoing Governor of Kano state, Abdulahi Ganduje, was gutted by fire at Miyangu Street in Nassarawa GRA Kano.
The State Fire Service disclosed that the fire broke out on Monday night.
Saminu Abdullahi, the Public Relations Officer of the State Fire Service, provided further details, stating that firefighters arrived at the scene to find the fire already being brought under control.
The fire reportedly started from the area where Governor Ganduje kept cows, resulting in the unfortunate loss of several animals.
Additionally, numerous high-value properties worth millions of naira were reduced to ashes.
Meanwhile, the exact cause of the fire remains unknown as renovations aimed at transforming the premises into a fitting abode for Kano State’s departing governor were still underway at the time.
