Panic in Lagos state as many feared to be trapped in burning WAEC Office
Wednesday morning brought tension when a fire damaged the West Africa Examinations Council facility in the Yaba neighbourhood of Lagos State.
As the fire rages, several individuals are suspected to be trapped within the structure.
It has not yet been determined what started the fire.
Emergency personnel were on the scene, though, and the fire was being extinguished.
According to sources, a power surge in one of the offices set off a wildfire, which started the conflagration.
Earlier, while the fire raged within the high-rise building’s business spaces, smoke could be seen pouring from the top of the structure
