The incident reportedly happened at about 1.30am just after the Nigeria vs Sweden match and was believed to have been caused by an electrical fault.
The report quoted the ward head of Jenta Adamu, Mr Kabala Bako, as saying: “It was about 1:30 am, when I was about going to bed, after watching the Nigeria vs Sweden match, I heard children screaming and calling for help. “The youths rushed to rescue them, struggling to prevent the fire from spreading to surrounding buildings.
“We kept pouring water before the men of firefighters came to the scene and quickly put off the fire. “When they finally went into the rooms, they discovered ASP Anthony Kwanmi and his three children were burnt, only their skeletons were hand picked to the hospital .”
The police public relations officer of Plateau state command, ASP Tyopev Mathias Terna, confirmed the incident adding that the distress call was received at about 3am. “Our men and fire fighters help in putting out the fire. “Unfortunately one Mr Kwanmi, a retired police officer and 3 of his children lost their lives in the inferno; while his wife and one family member are currently receiving treatment in the hospital.”
