According to him “the fire incident engulfed a hut where a 30-year-old Khadija Ibrahim was sleeping together with her two daughters, 4-year-old Aisha Ibrahim and 2-year-old Rabi Ibrahim.

He explained that both the mother and her two daughters were completely consumed by the inferno as none of the victims was rescued alive.

CSC Adamu said the cause of the fire was unknown, but neighbours said it might not be unconnected with a charcoal fire that was meant to keep them warm.
