Pastor TUNDE BAKARE, Presidential running mate, CPC

On 22 April, the residence of the vice presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Pastor Tunde Bakare, in Lagos, was gutted by fire; but no life was lost.

Family members and neighbours at the building located on Awuse Estate, Opebi, Lagos, said the fire started at about 4pm. No one could not identify what caused it or where exactly it started from.

They said as soon as they noticed the smoke and flames, they alerted the fire service department, but before fire-fighters arrived, an entire section of the building had been burnt. However, the fire-men and neighbours eventually put out the fire.

The police public relations officer, Lagos State Police command, Mr. Samuel Jinadu, told newsmen that the cause of the fire was not yet known. He however confirmed that policemen had been drafted to Pastor Bakare’s residence to ensure security.
