The National Youth Service Corps in the Federal Secretariat, Asaba, Delta State on Tuesday was destroyed by fire.
It was gathered that the fire incident which happened in the morning caused panic among workers at the office.
The Coordinator of the scheme in Delta State, Mrs Olutayo Samuel, said everything in the office was destroyed.
She said, “What happened this morning (Tuesday) is very unfortunate. I got a call that our office was on fire and I quickly rushed there; I don’t know how the fire gutted the office. Nobody can ascertain what exactly caused the fire.
“Virtually everything there got burnt; everything in the office got damaged. All the documents were burnt to ashes, but we have a backup. You know this is the technology age, so everything is in our system.
“Coincidentally, we took some of our systems to the camp and they are still at the camp; so, there will be no setback, because we have them in the system.
“I cannot put a cost to it now, but it is colossal damage. But by the grace of God, no life was lost, because that is the most important thing. I feel good because whatever was damaged can be replaced.”
