Fire guts Dana Pharmaceutical

The source, who craved anonymity in an interview  stated that the most affected areas were the AA2 service section, the operation unit of the company where the drugs were being manufactured and parts of the administrative block, before it was eventually brought under control.

Although, nobody, including journalists who were at the scene were allowed to enter the premises of the company after the fire was brought under control, a management staff of the company, an Indian who did not want his name mentioned in prints, confirmed the incident saying that the fire incident occured due to a technical fault from an electrical installation within the premises.

He, however, declined making further comments on the extent of damage, but one of the casual workers who identified himself as Musa informed  that the goods and other items destroyed by the inferno could be put at N5 million.

The fire incident has partially paralysed activities in the company, as members of staff were seen in groups discussing the inferno, which was likely to affect their operations, since most of them were casual workers  on a daily pay.
