This is coming amidst rumors of an impending impeachment procedure against the state Governor Sim Fubara.

Attempts to get information from members of the House have proven abortive as the lawmakers have remained tight-lipped on the rumoured plot.

It is unclear if the fire is connected with the political imbroglio, but rumours of a rift between Governor Fubara and his predecessor Nyesom Wike who is now FCT minister have been brewing for some time now.
