The office of the account General today went up in flames. The building housing the office is also known as the treasury house of the federation.
According to some staffs who were on duty the Fire started at about 10:25am from the office of the Assistant Director, Capital, located on the fourth floor of the 5-storey building.
Many Nigerians however are not taking the news with face value they believe that there is more to this incident that meets the eye.
The fire is also coming days after the people’s democratic party, PDP asked for an audit into the oil subsidy regime that the Buhari led administration claimed it had spent over 2trillion dollars on.
Is this foul play or just mere coincidence?
Some of the comments to this news are below;
I am sure there is a request from the President to know what Nigeria has, and the Accountant General can't give account on what was asked by the President. The next move is this. Meanwhile, Obesere warned him. #obesere #egungunbecareful

There is a #CoronaVirus lockdown in Abuja and the Accountant General’s office burnt down? This is an office that didn’t burn when it was a beehive of activities, only to burn when it became a ghost town? What are the odds? An accident? Very fishy!#FreeLeahSharibu #RenosNuggets
