Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, the President of LoveWorld Incorporated, known more popularly as Christ Embassy, has reacted to the mysterious fire outbreak on Sunday that gulped the church headquarters in Oregun.

Church members, passersby and sympathizers watched helplessly as the church’s main auditorium was razed in the fire outbreak that Sunday morning.

Speaking during service at the church’s campground in Ogun State, Oyakhilome said: “Nothing happens in the life of a child of God by accident. During the 2001 Ikeja cantonment bombing incident, the building vibrated so much, and we thought it was going to collapse.

“I thought to myself that if it collapsed, I was going to build a bigger, better one. At the end of the day, it didn’t collapse, and we called the engineers to see if there was any need to bring it down and rebuild, but it was still okay.”

Following the new development, Oyakhilome said “the church will build a bigger and better place of worship.”

As he puts it, “Now that this has happened, we will build a bigger, better, and more glorious one, and the devil will lick his wound,” he said.

Already, the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service (LSFRS) has been reported by News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) as saying the fire has been put under control.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the Director of the Service, Margret Adeseye said “the fire escalated because the church’s fire service thought they could handle the situation by themselves without recourse to the Lagos fire service.”

She also said “the cause of the fire could not be ascertained at the moment until investigation is done.”
