Fire Guts Lekan Balogun’s Ibadan House by sweetflame(m): 6:46am On Oct 31, 2013
The Ibadan residence of a prominent politician, Lekan Balogun,  in the  Alarere area of the city was destroyed by fire late Tuesday.

Although no life was lost in the incident, property worth millions of naira was destroyed by the fire.

Eyewitnesses said the fire started on Tuesday evening and would have completely burnt the house but for neighbours’ quick response.

Speaking on the incident on Wednesday, Balogun said he was not at home when the fire started.

He said, “I was not there when the fire started. I got a call from my guard who said the fire was much. I got in touch with the police station in the area. The DPO called the fire brigade. I also got in touch with the fire brigade later.

“I made about 40 phone calls within a short time while the fire raged. Within 10 minutes, everybody in Alarere trooped out with buckets of water. Before the fire brigade came, the people had put off the fire.”

Balogun said he lost everything to the fire but that he was thankful that no life was lost.

“Everything was completely destroyed. Every item of furniture in the living room and other things are badly damaged. The deck was also affected because the irons are now exposed. I can’t really estimate the property I lost to the incident. I thank God that the incident didn’t happen in the night. It would have been very disastrous if not for the neighbours that came to help me. I enjoyed the love of my neighbours. They were simply wonderful. May God be with all of them too,” he said.
