Nigerian Breweries Fire Outbreak; There was a fire incidence at the premises of the Nigerian breweries located at Iganmu in the early hours of Christmas day Sunday 25th December 2016. The fire is reported by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to have started at about 5:30 am in the morning.

A staff of the company who pleaded  anonymity confirmed to channels television that he rushed to the premises upon news of the fire outbreak. Although the cause of the fire could not be ascertained at the time, he recalls that the fire was very heavy in the morning subsiding significantly in the day following the efforts of the Lagos state fire fighters. They were supported by the company’s fire team, Julius Berger, Nigerian Ports Authority, United Bank For Africa and Union Bank.

Also, the commissioner of police Lagos state Mr Fatai Owoseni had deployed about a 100 police officers to the sight to manage the situation. The commissioner informed the deployment was necessary to give adequate security to the company’s properties from hudlooms who had trooped into the premises in numbers to take advantage of the situation.

According to report, the fire affected only the factory section of the premises where empty bottles and expired drinks are kept and had since been brought under control. This was later confirmed in a statement signed by the company’s adviser on corporate affairs Mr Kufre Ekanem.

While there were no lives lost, about 3 people were reported to have been taken away from the premises by NEMA for treatment due to the incidence. It is however not clear whether they are staff of the company or members of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA). Also affected in the incidence is the section of the company’s fence connecting the Iganmu interchange road.

An eye witness on the scene was reported to have said that the fire started from the company’s generator room. However, the staff who was also at the scene faulted his claims.
