Nigeria loses N50bn to fire disaster annually

Abba Moro, the minister of interior, says the country loses an estimated N50 billion worth of properties annually to fire disasters.



He said this on Thursday at the 5th National Council on Fire held at the June 12 Cultural Centre, Abeokuta, Ogun State.

According to Moro, the country may suffer more losses considering the unfolding climate change.
“As I am speaking to you now, we are losing an average of N50 billion worth of properties annually and so many lives are lost every year.

“Fire disaster is not regular occurrence.

“People hardly take proper notice of what happens but when fire disasters occur, especially against the impending climate change, it would cost this nation very seriously in losses to its commonwealth.”
