There was fire at a property of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, (SCOAN), in Ikotun, Lagos State.
Confirming the incident, the Head, Lagos State Fire and Rescue Services, Margaret Adeseye, said the fire affected a section.
She said, “It is an open place, so, it was the shelter that caught fire. But we were able to curtail it and it did not spread beyond where it started. We have yet to identify the cause of the fire.”
The Acting Coordinator, National Emergency Management Agency, Ibrahim Farinloye, who also confirmed the incident, told newsmen that the fire had been put out.
He said, “The incident happened at a building belonging to the late pastor. The late pastor usually went there to relax and meditate. Federal fire service officials moved in to put out the fire.”
