“Men of the Federal Fire Service were mobbed by residents of the area. Their firefighting trucks were vandalized and so they had to pull out. We in the FCT Fire Service also pulled out. We have called for police reinforcement and would soon go back when the police are able to secure the area” Tauheed said.
No casualties have been reported as of the time of filing this report.
