2 children die in mysterious fire Bauchi

Bauchi has been thrown into mourning following the sudden death of two children who were reportedly killed in a fire incident in their home after their mother locked them inside to run some errands. 

The incident which occurred at Medina quarters in the metropolis caused the death of 7 years old Zainab Bashir Muhammad (Hibba) and 5 years old Ummu Salma Bashir.

An eyewitness told our reporter that the unfortunate incident occurred around 11:00am on Sunday after the mother of the deceased children locked them in the house and went on an errand.

"When we notice the incident, myself and some neighbours rushed to the house, but we could not forcefully open the gate to gain access to the house. Eventually, we were able to get rid of the door with the use of some carpentry tools. 

Alas, it was too late because the fire had overwhelmed the room where the two children were staying. All we could see was a large fire with heavy dark smoke," Khalid Mai Doya, who was an eyewitness told Vanguard. 

Another eyewitness, Usman Abdullahi wondered why the mother did not leave the children with her neighbours, which he said would have averted the tragedy. 

"This thing is already destined by God, but it was not the habit of the mother to pick-up their children and go on errands. Most of the time whenever she was going out, she used to drop the children in my house, because our houses are close to each another.

"Her husband wasn't at home when the incident occurred. Up till this time I am taking to you, we don't know the actual cause of the incident," Abdullahi said.
