Below is a statement released by M-Net...
It has been confirmed that a fire broke out yesterday afternoon (Saturday March 2, 2013) at the Ojoto Studios facility, which is home to both M-Net and SuperSport productions in Nigeria.  At this time, the fire is under control and an investigation is underway to determine the cause of the blaze.

 Whilst the fire appears to have caused significant damage to the facility, which may result in some screening delays for programs recorded on site, M-Net and SuperSport are already hard at work with a view to resuming production as soon as possible in order to minimize any impact on viewing audiences at home. 

Further M-Net, SuperSport and MultiChoice are deeply thankful and grateful that no-one was injured during this unfortunate incident.
Finally, M-Net has confirmed that the fire will not affect its plans for next weekend when it hosts its inaugural AfricaMagic Viewers' Choice Awards, in association with MultiChoice, which is to be screened live from Lagos to over 50 countries on the African continent.

More information on this matter will be communicated as it becomes available. Members of the public are thanked for their concern and messages of support already received. At this time, the site has been closed and will remain this way until further notice
