There was serious confusion in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Wednesday, February 12, around 9:30pm when the house of former President Olusegun Obasanjo located at Ita-Eko area was gutted by strange fire.

According to report, the fire is suspected to have been caused by power surge as neighbours trooped out to sympathize with the former leader while making frantic effort to put out the fire.

It took nearly an hour to control the inferno which spread from one end to another following the harmattan breeze.

The state Director of Fire Service, Fatai Adefala, confirmed the incident to pressmen, but disclosed that the fire affected a store and not the main building in the former president’s compound.

He said officials of the agency swiftly responded to distress calls over the fire about 10:00pm and succeeded in putting it out.
