A part of the Supreme Court complex situated at the Three-Arm-Zone, Abuja, was on fire on Monday morning.
The fire which started around 7am, caused panic among staff members of the court who ran to safety.
Though no human casualty was recorded, however, it was not clear whether sensitive documents and files were destroyed by the fire.
A source said that the fire was probably caused by electrical malfunction in one of the offices within the administrative wing of the court.
The source confirmed that three offices, including that of Justice Mohammed Saulawa, was touched by the fire before it was eventually put off.
Meanwhile, the court is yet to issue a formal statement on the incident.
