The police command in Kano State says the Divisional Police Office in Nasarawa Local Government Area has been gutted by fire.
The state Commissioner of Police, Usaini Gumel, disclosed in Kano that the incident occurred in the early hours of Monday, February 12.
“At about 05.45am the Divisional Police headquarters was engulfed by fire and a major part of the building was burned down completely.
“This is in spite of prompt response by the State Fire Service,’’ he said.
Gumel said an investigation was ongoing to unravel the cause.
“The area has been cordoned off to prevent intrusion by on-lookers and miscreants, the arms and ammunition in the office are very safe.
“The Divisional Police Officer is currently sorting out some of the affected documents,” he said.
Earlier in the year, the Kano Police Command headquarters in Bompai was engulfed by fire on Saturday January 13.
