Obasanjo’s House On Fire

The country home of Nigeria’s former President, Olusegun Obasanjo at Olusegun Osoba Hilltop in Abeokuta, Ogun state has been damaged by a fire outbreak, which consumed the office building in the complex.

The fire started just about 20minutes after the former president left his Abeokuta Hilltop Mansion residence on Thursday. Photo by Dimeji Kayode-Adedeji

The fire which lasted for about 30 minutes was allegedly caused by a power surge.

One of the attendants in the house, who does not want to be identified, said that as soon as the blaze was noticed, men of the Ogun state fire service and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps were contacted.

The inferno was reportedly brought under control.

The former president returned home after the inferno started.

Addressing journalists that were present at the house, the former President in Yoruba language, jokingly used a native adage that the King’s house that burns will only be beautified.

“Go, go and sing to the whole world that ‘the King’s house that is gutted by fire only beautifies the house,” the former president cheerfully said.

He then dismissed the reporters as he continued to jest with members of family and  guests that had rushed there to sympathise with him.

    The looted change was sent on fire to cover some of his evidence and tracks of decades of wicked crimes and evil.
    ‘Kings house’ indeed! It is a hell that starts burning him from here…. But will he ever repent?

    It’s no surprise that the former Nigerian president would think of himself as a king.

    There is always a difference between the poor and the rich. Obasanjo was able to crack a joke when his house was on fire, a poor person would have being crying and weeping
    , that’s the reality of life.

    Good news. This is just the beginning of the end for them; hope there’ll
    be more to come; law of karma…BOOM!!! Boomerang….! to all those
    leaders who raped Nigeria and put her in this present situation. And to
    hell with all those sympathizers and supporters of Obasanjo and his
    likes.
