Fire breaks out at Obasanjo’s house in Abeokuta

A fire broke out on Wednesday night, February 12, at the residence of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

According to a report by QEDng, the fire broke out in the ex-president’s house situated at Ita-Eko, in the Ogun State capital.

The report says eyewitnesses said the fire began around 10 pm as a result of a power surge.

The incident was confirmed by the Ogun State Director of Fire Service, Fatai Adefala.
