Mr. Tondo a gubernatorial aspirant in Benue State come 2015, said the fire had nothing to do with his political ambition but as a result an electrical fault.
Tondo said,“This has nothing to do with my political ambition. It was as a result of a problem from public power source which can happen to anybody.

“The incident occurred as a result of a spark from the transformer that gutted the bushes around it and mistakenly through the air gutted my restroom.
“I thank God that it has not affected the main building and nobody was hurt,” he said.
