According to residents of the area, the situation was probably worsened by power generating sets that were filled with petrol.

One of the survivors, Mrs. Oyediran, a pregnant woman, said that a young man, she simply referred to as Demola, pulled her out while she was struggling to escape.

The other worshippers, she said, were asleep when the fire started. As at the time of filing this report, the three corpses were yet to be evacuated from the church, and it was gathered that the pastor of the church, and Demola who rescued the pregnant woman, were being interrogated by the police.

One of the deceased , it was gathered was a 92-year old man, whose son refused to speak on the incident but merely stated that he interested in retrieving the corpse of his father.
