Police couple, 2 others killed in Adamawa fire outbreak

The Adamawa State Police command has confirmed the death of a police Inspector identified as Bobbo, his wife, Sgt. Grace, their daughter, and a constable who were burnt to death in an early morning fire at Karewa Police Barrack in Yola.

The Command Public Relations Officer, Othman Abubakar, who confirmed the incident said the fire occurred around 1:00 am, adding that the cause of the fire is being investigated.

Abubakar said, “Inspector Bobbo, his wife Sgt. Grace, their daughter and a newly recruited constable who is a relation that is squatting with them were all killed in the unfortunate incident,”

Some residents of the barracks who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) said efforts to put off the fire and rescue the victims were not successful due to the burglary proof in the house.

“Many people have installed burglar proof due to petty thefts being experienced in the barrack,” a female resident who spoke under anonymity said.

Meanwhile, Adamawa Deputy Governor, Mr Martins Babale has visited the barrack to sympathize with the residents over the incident.
