Update: Oba of Lagos keeps mum on fire incident

Oba of Lagos, HRM Rilwan Akiolu has kept mum over the fire incident that engulfed a section of his Iga Idungaran Palace yesterday.

Our correspondent who was at the scene of the fire was not allowed into the palace. He was not alone as everyone was locked out except men of the Lagos State Fire Service and other emergency service personnel.

There was also very heavy police presence around the palace and late last evening, Lagos State Police boss, Fatai Owoseni was there to access the situation.

We have it on good authority that that the fire affected an apartment on the second floor of the palace and Oba Akiolu was in the facility when the incident happened.

The fire started from one of the air conditioners in the second floor bedroom and it also affected the living of that section too. Due to the intensity, everywhere was engulfed in smoke at about 1.40pm when the fire trucks arrived.

The Lagos State firefighters, officials of the Federal Fire Service, Julius Berger Fire Service and the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency joined in the effort to put out the fire.

Meanwhile, no comment has come out out from the palace on the incident
