An early morning fire incident occurred in the residence of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, in the Maitama area of Abuja on Friday, but no casualty was recorded.

Confirming the incident to reporters, the Special Adviser to the Senate President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Yusuph Olaniyonu, said the incident was caused by an electric spark from one of the air conditioners in the gymnasium of his principal.
