The Supreme Court Director of Press and Information, Akande Festus, has stated that the fire incident at the apex court on Monday has nothing to do with the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

He made this known while speaking to newsmen, adding that only one chamber of the Supreme Court was affected by the fire, which was doused with fire extinguishers.

Akande said, “What was destroyed in that chamber were books, stationery, and other computer gadgets. The books are replaceable because we have an e-library.

“We have the soft copy of the books and also the hard copy which can be procured and supplied tp the chamber. So it has nothing to do with the Presidential Election Petition, as people are saying outside.

“Such issues as presidential election matters are not discussed in the chamber, inside the court.”
