By Stanley Onyekwere

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, has reassured residents that the recent fire incident experienced around the Mpape area of the FCT is not a major cause for worry.
Bello said government will make sure that the lives and properties of the residents are not at risk at all.
He disclosed that security agencies have been instructed to cordon off the area so that samples will not be tampered with.
Bello spoke when he paid a visit to the area in Abuja on Tuesday,in company of the Minister of State, Mines and Steel Development Abubakar Bawa Bwari, following reports of ground vibration and fire outbreak from the earth around the area.
He said experts have been invited to have a look and determine what actually caused the incident.
According to him, “When this matter came up, the chairman (Bwari Area Council) briefed us as to what I’ve seen. But as you can see, we now have experts from the ministry (of Mines and Steel Development). So this means they have seen what oozed out and based on their preliminary observation, this obviously as you can see is not something that should make residents to be very concerned now, because they have taken samples.
“They have one or two reasons they think might have caused this, but all these cannot be determined until after thorough investigation.
