WARRI— THREE persons, including two lovers died in a kerosine blast

Godstime Bisa and Fine Boson, aged 26 and 15
years respectively, were Monday night, allegedly
burnt to death at Egbemene community, Warri
Corner, Warri South West Local Government Area
of Delta State in a suspected adulterated kerosene
blast.
the explosion, which
affected five persons, occurred when one of them,
who were inside a room, tried to refill an already lit
lantern.
According to a source, “unfortunately, only the two
lovers, who hail from Ekogbene community in
Burutu Local Government Area lost their lives,”
our source hinted.
“Property worth millions of naira were damaged in
the ensuring inferno, which happened at about
11.30 pm. The deceased persons were rushed to
the Central Hospital, Warri, but they died all the
same.”
Speaking to Vanguard on the incident, Tuesday,
coordinator of the Ijaw People Development
Initiative, IPDI, Comrade Austin Ozobo, said: “This
is a mysterious death, no one expected the two
lovers will die so cheaply.
“I have visited the community, the people are very
curious to know how such a minor fire could claim
two lives and left three seriously burnt. The Ijaw
people are equally handicapped over the attitude
of security operatives and government hospitals
because they assume that any Ijaw person burnt
by fire is an oil bunkerer or pipeline vandal.
“So they either inject the victim dead or call
security men to arrest the victim. This shows that
the life of Ijaw man has no value.”
His words, “Even now, we are still battling for a
suitable place where the three survivors can be
treated and one of them just died today (Tuesday).
So, I call on the state government to come to the
aid of the victims and their families.
