“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.”
Acting Coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency, Ibrahim Farinloye, confirmed the occurrence and claimed the situation had been brought under control.

“The incident 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.”
Talking about the tomb of the late founder of Synagogue Church, Margaret Adeseye, the Head of Lagos State Fire and Rescue Services, stated that the tomb shelter was harmed.
Margaret Adeseye Statement
“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.”
