It was a black Sunday on 23rd of June 2024, at the Christ Embassy Church headquarters along Kudirat Abiola Way, Ikeja, Lagos, as a raging fire gutted the Church’s building destroying property worth several millions of naira.

According to eyewitnesses, the fire started at about 8am but was curtailed following the prompt intervention of the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service and the Lagos State Emergency Management Authority (LASEMA).

However, no lives were lost in the incident. Meanwhile, worshippers who had gathered for the usual Sunday service scampered for safety.

The cause of the fire is yet to be determined.

Adeseye stated, “This is to inform Lagosians to be calm. The fire at Christ Embassy Church headquarters in Alausa, Ikeja, is under control right now.

“As of the time of this report, no loss of life has been recorded. We are on the ground ensuring the safety of lives and property.
