A section of the family home of Olusegun Obasanjo, former president, at Ita-Eko in Abeokuta, Ogun state, was engulfed by fire on Wednesday.
A family source revealed 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.”
TheCable 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.
