Fire Guts River State High Court, Documents Burnt Beyond Recognition
The Rivers State High Court at Degema, Degema Local Government Area earlier today was engulfed by fire in the early hours of the morning.
The cause of the inferno is yet to be ascertained but eyewitnesses said it started around 4am. Almost all parts of the building including many documents were destroyed in the fire, which started barely 48 hours after the directive from the JUSUN to judiciary workers to resume duties.
But Punch is reporting that it was a bomb blast, and not a fire incident.
