The private residence of Kaduna State based Islamic Scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has been razed by fire.

Although the incident happened on Saturday afternoon, information about the fire incident remains sketchy.

No casualties have been recorded but the roof of the one-story building was said to be affected as residents struggled to douse the inferno.

It was gathered that a part of the building was converted as a school.

While confirming the incident, an eyewitness said, "it was Allah’s will".

He added; “It was God’s will and the cause unknown because there was no electricity when the incident happened.”

DAILY TRUST reports that the video of the fire incident was posted on the Facebook wall of the scholar as youths struggle to prevent the fire from spreading to another part of the building.
