The fire incident hampered free flow of traffic as vehicles had to scramble for space to navigate through a narrow road.

Speaking during Sunday service at the church’s campground in Ogun State, Oyakhilome said the church would build a bigger headquarters.

He said: “Nothing happens in the life of a child of God by accident. During the 2001 Ikeja cantonment bombing incident, the building vibrated so much, and we thought it was going to collapse.

“I thought to myself that if it collapsed, I was going to build a bigger, better one. At the end of the day, it didn’t collapse, and we called the engineers to see if there was any need to bring it down and rebuild, but it was still okay.

“Now that this has happened, we will build a bigger, better, and more glorious one, and the devil will lick his wound.”

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service (LSFRS) says the inferno has been put under control.Mrs Margret Adeseye, Director, LSFRS, confirmed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Lagos.

Adeseye said the fire impacted the main auditorium of the church.

She said the fire escalated because the church’s fire service thought they could handle the situation by themselves without recourse to the Lagos fire service.

She said the cause of the fire could not be ascertained at the moment until after proper investigation.
