Written by on April 28, 2022
The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) on Thursday urged its members and friends not to panic over the fire that occurred at its old site in Agodo, Egbe, on Wednesday, and not be ”slaves to fear”.
Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, Coordinator, Southwest Zone of the National Emergency Management Agency, had told the Newsmen in Lagos that a fire started at the site at about 8.20 p.m. on Wednesday, but was brought under control at about 9.35 p.m.
He said that it occurred at the prophet’s private residence located at Ajisegiri Street, Agodo area of Egbe, in Ikotun-Egbe axis of Lagos State, and commended federal fire fighters who worked with NEMA officials to put out the fire.
Farinloye had, however, said that Church members prevented emergency responders from taking pictures at the scene of the fire, but he could not explain why they did so.
Reacting to the fire, the Church in a statement signed by Mrs Evelyn Joshua, said the cause was still unknown, but there was no need for panic and ”unnecessary speculations”.
She said that the fire outbreak was from a general purpose store at the old site and was successfully put out through the efforts of the ministry’s emergency response team, with no loss of lives or injuries.(NAN)
