The Kaduna Catholic Church blames the insecurity as the fire caused the death of property worth more than 100 million newtons.

The Catholic Diocese of Kaduna said the facilities of St. Peters Minor School, Katari, Kaduna, worth more than one hundred million naira, were destroyed by a fire on Monday.

The diocese blamed the outbreak of the fire on insecurity.

She pointed out that the accident would not have happened if the students were in the hostel, noting that in the wake of the bandit attacks, the school administration had to transfer the students.

Rector, Rev. Fr. Sati Edward announced the revelation during an inspection exercise conducted at the site on Thursday, explaining that the department has moved its students to Kafanchan and Zaria for more than two years now due to a series of attacks by bandits.

The Nigerian Catholic Network reported the fire incident on Monday in a statement signed by the Archdiocese Counselor, Rev. Fr. Christian Emmanuel said the fire destroyed two dormitories, a dining hall, a kitchen, and a laboratory.

According to Sati, “No life was lost, but as for Naira and Kubo, we can only assume. In Nigeria now, the construction of a building like this besides the equipment would cost you more than a hundred million Naira.”

The priest pointed out that there is a burning bush behind the fence that could infiltrate the facility due to the Haramatan season.

The Minister of Education, Catholic Diocese of Kaduna, Mr John Woji has appealed to organizations and Nigerians of good will to come to their aid.
