A fire outbreak, on Sunday, wreaked havoc at the World Assembly headquarters, along Ajase-Ipo Road, in Ilorin.
The inferno destroyed the main church auditorium and three other offices within the complex.
Kwara State Fire Service said it received an urgent call reporting the fire outbreak from one Mr Akani, according to the spokesman, Hassan Adekunle.
“The fire crew promptly responded to the call. Upon arrival at the scene, they found that a devastating inferno had already consumed the auditorium of the church due to the late call despite the significant damage caused by the fire. However, the firemen managed to contain the inferno and prevent it from spreading further.
“It’s worth noting that the materials used for the building construction were not fire-retardant, including aluminium roofing and plywood for the ceiling. These non-fire-resistant materials contributed to the rapid spread of the fire before the fire service’s arrival.”
