The top of the skyscraper which dots the skyline of Central Business District, Abuja, was seen billowing smoke from the pinnacle.
First firefighters have since been drafted to the incident scene and were also seen battling the inferno.
Since it began in 1939 in New York, United States, the World Trade Centre brand has since become global trade hubs in more than 90 countries including Nigeria.
There are mass concerns over the rising spate of fires at Federal Government edifices.
ElombahNews reported on April 8, 2020, that fire gutted the Treasury House which is the office of the Accountant General of the Federation in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The fire broke out barely five days after lawmakers of the House of Representatives raised alarm over the modalities deployed by the federal government in sharing N5.2 billion as palliatives to suffering Nigerians.
On April 15, barely one week later, fire erupted at the headquarters of the Corporate Affairs Commission located in Maitama, Abuja.
The fire which started at the first floor of the seven storey building, destroyed valuables and other items.
Again, this medium reported on July 3 that the Gombe branch of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) was engulfed in fire.
It was gathered that the fire started at about 10am adding to the series of fire outbreaks that have hit key government offices in the country.
Even public places are not exempt as Oba market in Benin, Akure Market, and Asaba Market were recently razed by fire.
More details on the current fire will be gathered and published as soon as they are ready.
