“About 25 staff of the court, attracted by the noise, rushed out to save the situation with fire extinguishers from their cars and that of the court.

“Their saving grace was Almighty Allah. If not that they forgot something that made them come back to the office, it would have been a calamity if it had happened on motion,” the source added.

It was further learnt that a client who came to prepare an affidavit rushed to inform the fire service adjacent the court complex.

The spokesperson for the fire service, Hassan Hakeem Adekunle, confirmed the incident to our correspondent on Thursday evening.
