Tragedy struck as an entire family was killed in a fire outbreak recently in Lagos
– The victims included a pastor, his wife and two children
– It was reported that the early morning inferno was triggered off by a power surge
It was indeed a sad day for the people of Buraimoh Street in the Bariga area of Lagos State on Monday, December 11 as a fire outbreak claimed the lives of an entire family.
The victims which included a pastor by the name of Kenneth Eze, his wife and their two kids were said to have been sleeping in the Shop when a power surge triggered a fire that trapped them inside the building and eventually led to their death.
Kenneth who was said to be the head pastor in charge of World Harvest Ministry in the Gbagada area of the state had earlier moved his family into the shop where they sold provisions and medicines. According to sources, he could not afford to pay the rent of his previous apartment due to the condition of his wife who had an illness caused by two cesarean births and had been bedridden for a while.

According to source, correspondents gathered from witnesses that the Ikeja Electric restored power around 2am, which allegedly triggered off the fire in the shop. The victims were trapped and couldn’t get out as a result of the two-level security burglar proof at the entrance of the shop and its extension, leading to their death.
Officials of the Lagos State Fire Service, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) and policemen from the Bariga division, were said to have responded to the emergency.
