According to reports, the fire started around 6.30 p.m. and razed a house on the property before spreading to and destroying Prophet TB Joshua’s tomb shelter, which he died in June 2021.

Because the fire fighters wouldn’t let anyone get close to the scene, a resident who asked to remain anonymous said he couldn’t say if anyone killed in the fire.

“The affected property is on Ajisebiri Street, Agodo. The house started burning around 6.30 pm and as I speak with you, fire service officials are trying to put out the fire. The compound of the house is big, so nobody can see what they are doing inside. Also, officials putting out the fire didn’t allow anybody inside.” the resident told newsmen.

Fire guts

The incident was confirmed by Ibrahim Farinloye, the Acting Coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency.

“The fire happened at a building belonging to the late pastor. The late pastor usually went there to relax and meditate. Federal fire service officials moved in to put out the fire.”

The fire destroyed the shelter covering the late pastor’s grave, according to Margaret Adeseye, the head of the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Services, who also confirmed the occurrence.

In words of hers,

It is confirmed that a section around the tomb of the late pastor TB Joshua caught fire. A shelter was built to cover the tomb because it is an open place, so, it was the shelter that caught fire. But we were able to curtail it and it did not spread beyond where it started from. We have yet to identify the cause of the fire.”
