Piezoelectric Fire in Calabar, Nigeria

About two weeks after throwing out a National Assembly petition by the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and angling to resume hearing in another governorship petition by the party, the Court of Appeal in Calabar, Cross River State, was early yesterday gutted by a mysterious fire.
Completely razed were the Justice chambers and hall of the Court of Appeal.
The fire started in the colonial structure at about 1.00 a.m. By the time the men of the Cross River State Fire Service arrived one hour later, the chambers and hall had been burnt completely.
The administration, litigation, accounts, library and store departments were, however, unaffected. An official of the court told the Nigerian Compass on Saturday that "sensitive" documents were also save from the fire.
The burnt building, which was made of mostly wood, at a time served as the Supreme Court of Nigeria when Calabar was the capital of the then Southern Protectorate.
The court had, two weeks ago decided in favour of the Peoples Dempocratic Party (PDP) in the A CN petition in the case between the sitting PDP member representing Bakassi/Akpabuyo/Calabar federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Mr Essien Ayi and Mr William Ballantyne of the A CN. The court threw out Ballantyne's claim that the April elections were fraught with malpractice and skewed in favour of Ayi.
The court is also expecting the tribunal case between the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Chief Godswill Akpabio of the PDP and A CN's James Udoedeghe. The matter was referred back to the Appeal Court by the Supreme Court, after it had struck out Udoedghe's case on technical grounds.
The Principal Fire Superintendent of the state, Albert Egbe, who said that the infernor could have been caused by electrical fault or some unattended electrical appliances, disclosed that his men were not informed of the incident on time, which could have reduced the extent of damage.
He said: "The occupants of the court were supposed to inform the fire service on time. If they had informed us on time, I don't think there would have been any problem. It was after the fire had gone far that they called us, around 2.00 a.m. By that time, it was those on night shift that were on ground and they did their best."
He continued: "The investigation is still on. We have not ascertained the real cause of the fire. We are still doing our investigations."
The Deputy Chief Registrar of the court said that she was informed of the incident by security officers at 1.30 a.m. By the time she arrived, the building had been fully gutted. She said that sensitive documents were not affected.
Gone in the inferno were computers, refrigerators, public address systems and air conditioners among other items.
These fires have been recurring in various towns in this region of Nigeria, with the large central market places being well-known for recurring spates of spontaneous fires that can be clearly linked with an inaudible acoustic influence.
This infrasonic influence is building strong electrical currents in the metal objects like wheel-barrows, door-knockers and copper electrical wiring in the walls of homes, which then become hot enough to ignite the plastic sheathing surrounding the wires. In other cases, heated wires ignite bed mattresses and metal hangers ignite clothing.
The infrasound which is now being focused onto the Calabar, Nigeria vicinity is being transduced by the Orion pyramids of present-day Giza, Egypt, which act as a nonlinear lensing system for resonantly balancing the geomagnetic fields of Earth as stimulated by coronal mass ejections from the increasing solar activity.
Calabar, Nigeria (4.95°N 8.33°E) is 2,275 miles from Giza, Egypt - a distance that comprises 9.1% of the Earth's mean circuference (of 24,892 miles). Other infrasound convergence sites in Nigeria have been identified in Babura, Abuja, Kaduna, Maiduguri, Enugu, Bauchi, and Jos.
The mathematical relationship of this resonant site within the global pyramid network reveals the invisible quantum connections linking such anomalous events related to solar activity. This pattern of intense solar flares and the resulting infrasound fires at focal points around the planet will culminate in the intense auroral events of December 22, 2012.
Other widely reported examples of such extreme manifestations of this resonance are now simultaneously occurring in Tenerife, Freetown, Omukondo, Onakaheke, Tsholotsho, Lalapansi, Goodhope, Nairobi, Mpumalanga, Mapuve, Bodibe, Bloemfontein, Hopewell, Tshiozwi, Cape Town, Landovica, Galway, Longford, Glasgow, Dublin, Crewe, Waterford, Peterborough, Coventry, Hull, London, Surrey, Steeple, Egham, Wisbech Messina, Peschici, Berici, across northern Greece, Ratria, Kakori, Mumbai, Kolkata, Charajpura, Kishtwar, Rangrik, Thiruvananthapuram, Kota Baru, Kuala Lumpur, Santo Tomas, Bandar Seri Begawan, New Norcia, Darwin, Rockhampton, Adelaide, Brisbane, Eaglehawk, Sydney, Georgetown, La Pampa, Melipilla, Nelson, and in the US in Seattle, Corvallis, Soudan SP, Minneapolis, New Ulm, Pueblo, Waxahachie, Anderson, Bluffton, Georgetown, Gautier, Crestview, Homosassa, San Mateo, Vallejo, San Francisco, Clovis, Calaveras, Haverhill, Peabody, Brentwood and New York City.
