A property located along Admiralty Way, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos said to be the home of big time singer, Olubankole Wellington aka Banky W has been destroyed by fire.
According to a neighbour to the artiste who spoke with the Punch, the fire believed to have started around 6am was caused by a faulty air conditioner.
The resident said, “The fire started around 6am and all of us came out to assist Banky in putting out the fire.
“However, Fire service officials arrived around 7.30.
“So many items were destroyed including Banky’s awards.”
Officials of the fire service arrived over an hour late.
The fire service has got a lot of improving to do. Thank God Banky’s safe at least.
