Oyakhilome says Christ Embassy will build bigger auditorium after fire outbreak

The President of LoveWorld Incorporated, popularly known as Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has reacted to the fire incident that ravaged the church’s headquarters in Ikeja, Lagos.

 He stated that they would build a bigger church that would put the devil to shame.

The Lagos Fire Service was at the scene of the incident and they put it out.

Speaking at the church’s campground in Asese, Ogun State during its live Sunday service, Oyakhilome recalled the Ikeja Cantonment bombing in 2001.

He added that whatever happens in the life of God’s child is not by chance. In his words: “Nothing happens in the life of a child of God by accident. During the 2001 Ikeja Cantonment bombing incident, the building vibrated so much and we thought it was going to collapse.

“I thought to myself that if it collapsed, I was going to build a bigger, better one. At the end of the day, it didn’t collapse and we called the engineers to see if there was any need to bring it down and rebuild but it was still okay.

“Now that this has happened, we will build a bigger, better, and more glorious one and the devil will lick his wound.”

Earlier on Sunday, the Director of Lagos Fire and Rescue Service, Margaret Adeseye, released a statement about the fire incident. She said: “At 07:27 hours, a fire outbreak was reported at the Christ Embassy Church on Billings Way, Ikeja.

“Firefighting units from Alausa and Ikeja fire stations were promptly dispatched and arrived at the scene by 07:36 hours. The church auditorium was found to be engulfed in flames. The fire is currently under control.”

“The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, and investigations are underway to ascertain its origin. No casualties have been reported at this time. Updates will be provided as more information becomes available.”
