He said the outbreaks occurred at Otigba Garden in Ogui axis and at I.T.C Computer Department located at Achike Udenwa Complex of the Institute of Management Technology (IMT) both in Enugu.

“It was gathered that the fire incident which allegedly erupted on Dec. 25 had engulfed the roof of the Achike Udenwa Complex of IMT before the arrival of the fire fighters which prevented its escalation.

“However, some properties were said to have been destroyed by the inferno.

“Similarly, that of the Otigba Garden is said to have occurred in the early hours of Jan. 4 but the intervention of the fire fighters prevented its escalation.

“Although property said to be worth about N2.5 million was said to have been destroyed by the fire.
