The Lagos residence of Joe Ajaero, the Nigeria Labour Congress President, has been gutted by fire.
A statement by an NLC spokesman said the entire building was razed to the ground without a pin salvaged.
In the statement, the NLC said the mystery fire which started from the roof was preceded by some strange noise that family members present initially took for foraging domestic animals.
The statement says however, minutes after, the building exploded in a ball of fire as family members scampered for safety.
It was learnt that the prompt response of members of the community and fire brigade was not enough to save the situation.
Ajaero, while responding to whether or not the fire incidence may have been the handy-work of unscrupulous elements targeting him, said his work as President of the Labour Union comes with a lot of ŕisks but refused to be drawn into who may be after him.
When pressed further, the Labour boss said he gives glory to God no life was lost in the inferno.
