3 burnt to death in Ibadan church inferno


Tragedy struck in Ibadan yesterday, when three persons were burnt to death  in a fire outbreak that razed a church, Mercyland Prayer Ministries, located at Idi-Aro area in  the Oyo State capital.  Four other residents including a pregnant woman escaped by the whiskers.

When reporters visited the scene, the bodies of the  victims which included a woman, were seen inside the church premises .The inferno, it was gathered, started at about 1.45am and lasted about three hours during which property which included two generating sets, two complete drum sets, ceiling fans, many sewing machines as well as plastic and wooden chairs were destroyed.

According to residents of the area, the situation was probably worsened by  power generating sets that were filled with petrol.

One of the survivors, Mrs. Oyediran, a  pregnant woman, said that a young man, she simply referred to as Demola, pulled her out while she was  struggling to escape.

The other worshippers, she said, were asleep when the fire started. As at the time of filing this report, the three corpses were yet to be evacuated from the church, and it was gathered  that the pastor of the church, and Demola who rescued the pregnant woman, were being interrogated by the police.

One of the deceased , it was gathered was a 92-year old man, whose son refused to speak on the incident  but merely stated that he  interested in retrieving the corpse of his father.
