News reports say that the palace of the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu is currently on fire. This is coming almost a week after the Oba of Lagos publicly humiliated the Ooni of Ife at a public function.

According to reports, the monarch is said to have been taken to a safe place while officials of Lagos state fire service are within the palace trying to put out the fire.

It was gathered that the incident started around 1.30pm with smokes billowing to the sky, which attracted a crowd to the area.

The palace gate was, however, shut to the crowd as firefighters from the Lagos State Fire Service, Shari Iganmu and Ilupeju stations, battled to put it out.

A senior emergency official, who spoke to our correspondent on condition of anonymity, confirmed the incident, saying the fire had been put out.
