He said this during a live Sunday service at the church’s campground in Asese, Ogun State.


It was earlier reported that the church headquarters, located in the Oregun area of Ikeja, Lagos State, caught fire on Sunday morning.



This was revealed in multiple videos from the scene shared on on Sunday.

Speaking on the incident, Oyakhilome said, “Nothing happens in the life of a child of God by accident. During the 2001 Ikeja Cantonment bombing incident, the building vibrated so much and we thought it was going to collapse.


“I thought to myself that if it collapsed, I was going to build a bigger, better one. At the end of the day, it didn’t collapse and we called the engineers to see if there was any need to bring it down and rebuild but it was still okay.


“Now that this has happened, we will build a bigger, better, and more glorious one and the devil will lick his wound.”


Officials of the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service are also said to be at the scene to salvage the situation.

“Serious fire is raging, and men of the Lagos State Fire Service are working hard to put it off. Thank God service hasn’t commenced fully.”
