Nigeria: Four Kids Die in Mysterious Fire

Owerri — A mysterious fire yesterday, consumed four children of the same parents in their Obokofia, Ohaji/Egbema Local Government Area of Imo State.

Vanguard investigations revealed that the deceased children, Mercy, Ify, Chioma and Onyinyechi, were aged between six and 12.

Narrating the family's ordeal, the father of the deceased children, Mr. Charles Aggrey, lamented that it was most regrettable that his children spent their long vacation in their maternal home only to return and meet their untimely death.
