Fire sweeps through the federal secretariat building early Monday morning March 8, 2004, in Lagos, housing the food and drug administrative authority, NAFDAC, and other small central government agencies. Many government ministries that used to be housed in this building were moved to Abuja, the nation’s capital, some ten years ago. The cause of the fire is not yet known.
