Fire Wreaks Havoc At FRCN Station In Osun


Fire has gutted the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), Gold Fm in Ilesa, a town in Osun State.

The inferno was said to have begun very early on Saturday morning and destroyed equipment worth millions of naira.

An eyewitness told Channels Television that the fire was later put out after about an hour by officials of the Osun State Fire Service in Ilesa.

The Divisional Police Officer of Ayesa Police Station was also on ground with his men as well as residents in the area to render possible help.

The announcer on duty at the station who spoke with reporters at the scene, however, said no one could ascertain the cause of the incident.

Some of the places affected include live and recording studios, as well as engineering, programmes, marketing, accounts, and administration departments.
