Kastina State Governor, Hon. Aminu Bello Masari has expressed shock at the extent of damage caused by the fire, which gutted a section of the state House of Assembly complex.
A part of the state assembly complex was yesterday razed in an overnight fire incident.
The state lawmakers usually hold plenary sessions inside the chamber.
But when the workers who wanted to clean the chamber yesterday morning opened its doors, they discovered that the whole place had been razed and they raised the alarm.
Masari, who visited the House of Assembly complex to assess the damage, expressed shock at the incident.
The House Deputy Chief Whip, Hon. Salisu Rimaye, who was also at the scene of the incident, said the root cause of the incident was unknown, adding that a team of electricians had begun processes to ascertain its cause.
He revealed that the fire was discovered when the Clerk of the House instructed the Sergeant-at-Arms to go and clean up the chamber.
He added that the fire extinguishers in the assembly were initially used to curtail the fire before men of the state fire service joined in putting it out.
