Fire Outbreak Kills Preacher’s Wife And 4 Children In Warri

The pastor had gone for a pastors’ conference in Osun State and that the fire occurred at midnight

A pastor of Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), Otumara, Warri Delta state was left distraught over the death of 5 of his family members.

According to The Nation, family of Pastor John Kayoda were said to been killed in a fire outbreak which occurred at midnight, believed to be caused by an electrical fault.

The incident destroyed the mission house as well as part of the main building of the Christ Apostolic Church.

Reports say Church leaders and members, who spoke in tears, lamented the loss of Pastor Kayoda, whose family was “burnt beyond recognition”.

They said the pastor had gone for a pastors’ conference in Osun State and that the fire occurred at midnight.

A neighbour, Bright December, said all rescue efforts were fruitless because of the iron protectors.

December said the general belief was that the fire must have been caused by an electrical fault in the area.

The church secretary, Emmanuel Ogoigbe, and Margaret Ichibo said the bodies have been deposited at the Warri Central Hospital.

The church elders put the children’s ages between eight and 18.
