According to eyewitnesses, the fire started from the section of the complex occupied by the Federal Ministry of Education and fire fighters are battling to save the inferno from spreading to adjourning buildings.

It reportedly began at the sixth floor of the building and is believed to have affected the seventh and eight floors.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time, but thick smokes has engulfed the building and surrounding ones.

Workers in the building were seen scampering for safety while a good number of staff and visitors are trapped in the complex.

However, as the chaos caused by the fire lingers a spokesperson for the Federal Fire Service said his agency received alert on the incident 30 minutes after the fire started.

He said there was no casualty in the incident but that his agency was yet to establish the cause of the fire.
