On Friday night, March 21, gospel reggae singer Buchi Atuonwu almost lost his house, a duplex located at 30b Olufunmilayo Street, Dideolu Estate, Ogba, Lagos State, in fire incident.
According to a source, the fire began to spread from the mini studio to parts of the living areas upstairs around 9:45PM. At this time, Mr Buchi was away in Warri, but the rest of the family was home.
Buchi’s wife, Jane, declined to give any comments about what happened, according to NET. She said: "I like to spread good news and not bad news. I don’t want to say anything about this."
As you can see on the photos, the fire didn't make much damage but still it's unpleasant experience.
