Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, Territorial Coordinator, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), confirmed the incident to newsmen on Wednesday in Lagos.

Farinloye said that the fire, which started at about 0011 hours at the rear end of the church, was not noticed by the church workers but by passersby who drew the attention of the indoor workers to the incident.

“No injury or casualty was recorded,” Farinloye said.

He said that the church was preparing for a five-day crusade beginning from Wednesday and ending on Feb. 4.

He said that the premises, said to have been leased and insured, was hired by the Church.

“It was found out that due to the expected turn out of congregants for the crusade, the Church workers had been undergoing training by Fire Service to prepare for any eventualities.

“Agencies on ground are NEMA, Lagos State Building Control Agency, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, State Fire Service and the Nigeria Police,” Farinloye said. (NAN)
