Fire engulfs Christ Embassy in Lagos

THE headquarters of Christ Embassy Church located at Oregun, Lagos State, was engulfed with fire in the morning of Sunday, June 23.

Several videos from the scene were shared on social media by different users and some members of the church.

Officials from the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service were on the site battling the inferno.



    Among the people who took to social media to share the news was @bigwig_autin on X who posted, “A serious fire outbreak in Christ Embassy Headquarters Lagos. Fire Service help needed ASAP!”

    “Fire guts Christ Embassy Church Headquarters In Lagos. Hope people are safe and no one’s hurt,’ wrote @Midifilo

    “The interior view of the Christ Embassy Oregun church that’s currently on fire. I really hope they recover from this loss,” another  account user @temitotepr said on X.

    The ICIR reports that given several reactions from eye-witnesses, services were yet to commence fully when the fire broke out, and it remains unclear if people were trapped in the lush white buildings.
