According to inside sources, the fire started at about 3am in the house located in the Soka area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
Fire service arrived the scene few hours later to douse the fire.

Igboho came into limelight last week after storming a Fulani settlement in Igangan, to eject Seriki Fulani, Salihu Abdudir, and herdsmen at the expiration of a seven-day ultimatum he issued to the Fulani’s to vacate the area.
He had accused them of masterminding violent crimes such as kidnappings, killings, rape, and the destruction of farmlands.
Igboho, who is the Akoni Oodua of Yoruba land, has since distanced himself from the destruction of some Fulani settlements in the area.
