INFERNO: Clergy, Wife, Children Escape Death As Fire Razes Church

Thanks to God no life was lost. A six year old child needs supervision, not to be left to light a candle without checking.


Not the reported incident

A Delta State -born resident clergy man, Pastor Israel Ovie, his wife and four children yesterday escaped death by the whisker, following an evening fire outbreak that razed the state district headquarters of Greater Power of God Fire Mission International in Amarata, a suburb of Yenagoa metropolis.

The fire incident was reportedly triggered by a candle light by the pastor’s six years old daughter, Dominion Israel,  due to power outage in the apartment designated as pastor’s residence.

According to an eyewitness, the inferno,  which started at about 8:45pm, destroyed property worth millions of naira in the church constructed with planks. It took the timely intervention of neighbours and passers-by to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby houses.
