House of Popular Yoruba Activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday was razed in the early hours of Tuesday.

However, no life was lost in the fire, which reportedly started around 3 am.

Channels Television could not ascertain the cause of the fire, as at the time of publishing this report.
