The Lagos residence of Comrade Joe Ajaero, President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), was completely destroyed by an unexplained fire.
According to reports, the building was completely destroyed by the flames, leaving nothing behind.
A strange noise is said to have been heard before the fire, which is thought to have originated from the roof.
The family members there initially discounted this sounds as being made by animals in the house.
However, within minutes, the building erupted in flames, leaving the occupants no choice but to escape, leaving everything behind.
The local community and fire departments responded quickly, but nothing could be done to preserve the building.
The grieving family members reportedly declined to remark on the incident, according to Vanguard.
Comrade Joe Ajaero, who was in Geneva during the incident, has also mainly kept quiet since arriving home.
He was appreciative that no one perished in the fire when questioned about his feelings.
Ajaero acknowledged the hazards associated with his position as President of Congress when asked about the possibility that the fire was purposely started because of his position, but he chose not to speculate on probable offenders.
