On Monday night, a fire broke out inside the Synagogue Church of All Nations in Lagos’ Ikotun neighborhood.
The fire, which destroyed a storehouse on the church grounds, erupted at 11 p.m., according to the PUNCH.
The fire broke out on the night of the light procession in honor of the Church’s late founder, Prophet Temitope Joshua, also known as T.B. Joshua.
Members of the congregation, who had gathered for a night of tributes and a candlelight parade in his honor, were shocked.
On Tuesday, firefighters arrived at the scene of the fire around 12:19 a.m., according to reports.
The fire had been put out before the fire department arrived, according to an eyewitness.
“The fire was started by an electrical spark in the control room. He said, “It happened after the candlelight procession.”
In a press release, the church acknowledged the fire event and stated that no one was injured.
“On the late evening of Monday, July 5th, 2021, there was a minor electrical fire incident at a storehouse within The Synagogue Church Of All Nations complex,” according to the statement.
“With no casualties, the event was swiftly brought under control.
“The SCOAN has worked closely with appropriate government authorities, including the Lagos State Fire Services, whose members were on the ground at the time of the tragedy, as part of the preparations for the weeklong services honoring the life and legacy of Prophet TB Joshua.
“We praise God for His unwavering protection. We want to reassure the people that there is no need to be concerned, and that the services honoring Prophet TB Joshua’s life and legacy will go on as planned.”
On June 5, at the age of 57, the pastor, televangelist, philanthropist, leader, and creator of The Synagogue died.
Evelyn Joshua, his widow, led the candlelight parade to the SCOAN Faith Resort in Lagos’ Ikotun neighborhood.
TB Joshua would be put to rest on Friday, July 9 at the church grounds in Lagos, according to SCOAN.
