“The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained while it was confined to the first floor of the storey building where it originated from. Out of 4 flats in the storey building, one flat was affected,” the statement read.

“However, an earlier fire outbreak that engulfed a residential building at Olanipekun Hospital G.R.A, Opposite Oyeleke Memorial College offa, Offa Local Government Kwara State, involved storey building of about 16 bedrooms, 8 bedrooms affected as a result of power surge.
