Explosion rocked Partners auditorium in Christ Mercy land Deliverance Ministry aka Mercy city, a popular church along the Warri-Sapele road, Delta state on Tuesday, triggering a major inferno in the building.

A top staff of the church said  the fire started suddenly, adding that the first person who saw it said he heard a major explosion and what followed next was a huge ball of fire.

The founder and Senior Prophet of the church, Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin aka Papa J, for comment, politely declined ,saying he would prefer the church secretary  to speak.

Some staff of the Mercy city  who spoke on condition of anonymity  said the fire started at about 11 am in the morning and  was extinguished by fire fighters.

” We heard something like dynamite exploded in the hall causing the fire”, they said.

According to them, no life was lost  . Effort to get comment from the church on the incident was unfruitful as the Mercy Television office line was switched off.

At the scene of the incident there were  chairs, air conditioners  destroyed by the fire.

The members who spoke expressed gratitude to God that the incident occured at the time church service was not on.

“It would have been disastrous if church service was on. We thank God no life was lost”, another member said.

The fire only wrecked havoc inside the hall. No vehicle outside was torched.
