The Canadian High Commission in Nigeria, located at 13010G, Palm Close, Diplomatic Drive, Central Business District in Abuja, is said to have caught fire in some parts.
Although photographs circulating online revealed billows pouring from the building, news media reports state that the cause of the conflagration could not be determined at the time this report was filed.
Staff personnel and their cars were observed being evacuated from the building shortly after the fire was reported to have started on Monday around 11:30 a.m.
Those looking to travel to or immigrate to Canada can get visa and immigration assistance from the High Commission.
It provides services to Canadians who travel to and reside in Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea, Sao Tome and Principe, and Canada.
