A fire has occurred at the High Commission of Canada in Abuja’s Central Business District.
Two people have been fatally injured, and about four others have been taken to the hospital.
The cause of the fire has not been confirmed, and it’s unclear whether the affected individuals are foreign expatriates or Nigerian citizens.
The fire was said to have begun around 11:30 a.m. on Monday, and the members of staff and vehicles were seen evacuated from the building.
The High Commission provides visa and immigration services for those seeking to visit or emigrate to Canada.
It offers services to Canadians visiting and living in Nigeria and to Canadians in Equatorial Guinea, and Sao Tome and Principe.
