A part of the residence of prominent Islamic Cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi in the Kaduna State capital has been gutted by fire.
The incident, which occurred on Saturday afternoon, affected an Islamiyya school located inside the compound along Alimi Road in the Kaduna metropolis.
However, the cause of the fire incident could not be ascertained as of the time of publishing this report.
An eyewitness told Channels Television that they suddenly saw a cloud of thick smoke coming out of the building just very close to the gate, forcing neighbours to fetch water to put out the fire. Officials of the Kaduna State Fire Service later rushed to the house and successfully put out the fire, stopping it from spreading to the entire compound
