Princess A Five (5) years Old Girl Burns To Death In Yenagoa, Bayelsa State

The riverside settlement of Ogbogoro in the outskirts of Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital was thrown into mourning on Thursday night following the burning to death of a five year old girl in an inferno.

The deceased child, simply identified as Princess, eyewitnesses told Saturday Vanguard, was a daughter of a policeman attached to the Osiama Division of the State Police Command in Southern Ijaw local government area of the state.

It was gathered that the incident which occurred at about 7.30pm was caused by a burning candle which was left by the elder sister of the deceased,
It was learnt that the sister to the deceased, who is a Junior Secondary School (JSS) student, had made use of the candle light in  solving her school homework.
She was said to have left the candle burning and went out to get some foodstuff for  her siblings.
”While she was away, the candle fell and set ablaze the fabrics on the floor of the room. The deceased and her 7-year old brother, Henry, were in the room but attempt by the latter to wake the sister proved abortive,” the source said. Also at the time of the incident the mother of the deceased was in the market selling crayfish while the father was away at his duty post in the creek of the state.

This is a really sad incident as I blame Power Holding Company Of Nigeria (PHCN)
