An inferno on Monday, March 26, 2018, razed down a multi-million Naira Reference Laboratory Centre at the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Training Centre, NTBLC, in Zaria, Kaduna State.

The burnt reference centre is one of the best in Africa fully equipped with functional facilities for the test of HIV, leprosy and malaria among other diseases.

A NAN Correspondent, who visited the scene reports that the fire which lasted for about three hours was later brought under control by firefighters.

However, the cause of the fire was not yet ascertained.

When contacted, Labaran Shehu, the Principal of the centre, declined to comment, saying, “The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.”

He, however, promised to conduct a thorough investigation on the cause of the incident and address journalists later on his findings.
