A part of the family home of Olusegun Obasanjo, former president, at Ita-Eko in Abeokuta, Ogun state, was gutted by fire on Wednesday.
A family source said that the fire outbreak happened about 9 pm and that it only affected the boys’ quarters of the property.
”The house is where Obasanjo’s parents lived. It is an old house. It is not the main residence of the former president,” he said.
”The fire was eventually put out.”
It was learnt Obasanjo was not in the country at the time of the incident, and that he was on his way back from an AU meeting.
