An unfortunate fire incident occurred this morning at the Mamman Kontagora House, 23 Marina,Lagos. Luckily no life was lost and no sensitive document was destroyed because the fire mostly affected the Marina side of the building.
The Managing Director/Chief Executive of the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC), Alhaji Umaru Ibrahim and Managing Director of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMBN), Alhaji GimbaYau Kumo have visited the building.
Although the fire had since been put out, it had become necessary to temporarily relocate all the NDIC staff from the Mamman Kontagora House to NECOM House, No 15 Marina, Lagos to ensure continuity of service and to enable the fire service and other experts to assess the extent of damage.
It is hoped that the Corporation’s normal activities will resume at the Mamman Kontagora House on Monday 20th April, 2015.
The NDIC Management wishes to thank the general public for their sympathy and concern. It also wishes to thank the Lagos State Fire Service, Nigeria Ports Authority, Julius Berger, Union Bank and Federal Fire Service for their tremendous assistance in putting out the fire.
