Many escape death as Katsina state float catches Fire at Abuja carnival

The Street procession of Abuja Carnival, which began on Saturday was temporarily disrupted as the Katsina State float went up in flames.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the incident occurred when the beautifully decorated float mounted on an articulated truck came in contact with a high tension electric wire at Area One.
The float was very high, while the wire was not that high.
The Katsina State contingent did not notice that their float was too high to pass beneath the electric cables as they and everyone were carried away by the excitement and fanfare that being experienced during the procession.
It took the combined efforts of the contingent, spectators, residents and other good Samaritans to put off the fire.
This they did by pouring sachets of packaged water, popularly known as “pure water’’ on the burning float.
While some were pouring water on the float, others tried to tear off the fabric used in decorating it to save the truck from burning.
However, it was the fire extinguisher brought by a Good Samaritan that saved the truck from burning.
NAN reports that nobody was injured during the incident.
While, there were securities agencies, medical personal and other government parastatals on ground, the Nigeria Fire Service was conspicuously absent.
The carnival continues on Sunday Dec. 4.
Some states participating in the event includes Kwara, Bayelsa, Kogi, Yobe, Delta, Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and Nasarawa among others. (NAN)
