Fire has razed The World Assembly Headquarters in Ilorin, Kwara State on Sunday.
The Kwara State Fire Service says the outbreak was possibly caused by a power surge.
In a statement by the Head of Media and Publicity at the service, Hassan Hakeem Adekunle, said one Mr Akani made “an urgent call” reporting the incident around 5:08 pm on September 3.
“The fire crew promptly responded to the call. Upon arrival at the scene, they found that a devastating inferno had already consumed the auditorium of the church due to late call despite the significant damage caused by the fire,” he said.
“However, the firemen managed to contain the inferno and prevent it from spreading further.”
Adekunle added that a subsequent investigation was carried out into the cause of the outbreak, saying, “It was suspected to be as a result of [a] power surge.”
