Two hours after members of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations ( SCOAN) ended its candlelight procession for the Late Prophet T.B. Joshua at his Faith Resort ground, Agodo, Egbe, restaurant of the SCOAN, Ikotun, caught fire.
The building, which is close to Gate 5 of the church, was ablaze around 11:30 pm. The church members were able to put out the fire before it spread to other parts of the building.
According to some members of the church, the fire was caused by an electrical problem.
As at the time of this report there were no casualties as everyone in the restaurant got out before the fire started.
“My room was on the second floor so when the smoke started it was very thick and I couldn’t breathe,” a member of the church said.
“Thank God we got out.”
Another member said “this has never happened before. I have been living here all my life and this kind of thing has never happened.”
Fire service men located at the Ikotun area arrived an hour after the fire was put out by members of the church.
