Woman Runs Mad After Losing 4 Children In Kerosene Explosion
A middle-aged woman has run amok after losing four of her children in a kerosene explosion at her residence.
The woman, simply identified as Iya Samson, has reportedly been going about naked since the unfortunate incident.
The fire outbreak which took place last Friday night at Rumukwucha community, Rivers State, resulted from the adulterated kerosene she poured into her cooking stove.
She was cooking when the stove suddenly went up in flames, consuming her four children and other valuables in her apartment.
After the incident, the woman is reported to have been walking naked and appealing to passers-by to help rescue her children.
Her husband, Ademola Danaogun has appealed to Port Harcourt residents to help bring back his wife wherever she is found.
He pleaded with the public not to attack his wife or mistake her for a witch or mad woman, emphasising that she had not recovered from the shock of the sad and painful loss.
He said, “We have been looking for her since. Some said they saw her at Ogbogoro; we have gone there to look for her, but didn’t find her.
“Yesterday evening, some people said they saw my wife at GRA. They said she was shouting that her four children were burning in fire.
“Please, if you see my wife, don’t kill her. People may conclude that she is a witch and had killed the children.
“No, it is not like that. I want to see her and take her home. We are going back to our state because we have lost everything” he agonised.
