Mallam Abbah Kyari, a former Auditor General of Borno State, died today, Thursday, in a fire outbreak inside the Vice-Chancellor’s Lodge of the University of Lagos, UNILAG.

Kyari was visiting the University for the installation of the Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Abubakar Ibn Umar Garba El-Kanemi as Chancellor of the University.

Reports have it that a member of the emir’s delegation revealed that the fire incident started at about 2am from one of the rooms ‎in the lodge.

An electrical fault is suspected to have caused the fire.

The fire started sometime around 2am and there were frantic efforts to douse it, but unfortunately, the damage had been done as the former Auditor General sustained injuries that eventually claimed his life,” the source who pleaded anonymity said. (TVC)
