Burnt To Death
A pregnant mother, a two-month-old baby, and two others are said to have be burnt to death in an early morning fire at the Bonny-Bille-Nembe Jetty in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, according to EjesGist Newspaper.
In addition, approximately 40 boats were destroyed in a fire that was allegedly started by people attempting to transport illegally refined items, also known as kpofire in the local palance.
The fire broke out at 2 a.m., and the victims, including a male adult, were apparently burned beyond recognition.
Previous fires at the jetty were blamed on the storing of flammable materials such as petroleum fuel needed to power the speed boat engines in temporary structures within the slump.
The most recent fore outbreak at the jetty occurred in November, during which numerous people were burned and properties worth millions of naira were damaged.
Thousands of citizens go by boat from Port Harcourt to Bonny, Bille, Nembe, and other riverine settlements, making the jetty a bustling transit point.
The consequences of these disasters are frequently severe due to the government’ sluggish response to emergencies or difficulty accessing the area due to the terrain.
