Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the federal government disclosed that it is considering establishing a fire police unit to provide protection for firefighters across the country.
A spokesperson for the ministry of interior, Blessing Lere-Adams, made the disclosure in a statement on Saturday, July 3, in Abuja.
She stated that the new initiative was to address the security challenges faced by firefighters during operations. Lere-Adams noted that the fire service officials sometimes encounter mob action and vandalism of firefighting assets in the country.
