A blazing inferno has wreaked havoc, reducing Jide Oloyedeâ€™s two-room apartment at 12, AjoseÂ Street in Shomolu to rubbles at the weekend.
The incident occurred while Oloyede, the elder brother of the famous Taiwo Oloyede ofÂ Stationery Stores fame, was attending training session with the Managers FC.
The team were preparing for the forthcoming friendly tie against Stationery Stores in honourÂ of Yomi Peters, who celebrated his 70th birthday this weekend. Peters is a member of theÂ Lagos Divisional Football Association, LDFA, headed by Dotun Coker.
Oloyedeâ€™s valuables including a television set, refrigerator, rug and chairs were razedÂ before fire-fighters came to the rescue of other tenants in the house.
