Christ Embassy Fire Now Under Control – Fire Service


The Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service (LSFRS) said that the fire that engulfed the main auditorium of Christ Embassy Church Headquarters, Oregun, Ikeja, 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 that the fire escalated because the church’s fire service thought they could handle the situation by themselves without recourse to the Lagos fire service.

“This is to tell Lagosians to be calm, the fire outbreak at Christ Embassy headquarters in Ikeja is under control right now. No life involved.

“The fire is under control, at the end of the firefighting, we will update report. Let us be calm, firefighting is ongoing and it is under control,” she said.

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

The church caught fire earlier on Sunday.


Videos and pictures of the incident are circulating on social media.

At the scene, security operatives had cordoned off the site.

Also, workers of the church were seen packing some properties that were not burnt as they redirected worshippers to another branch of the church to observe Sunday service.

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