Mysterious fire burns two minors to death in Akwa Ibom
A mysterious fire has burnt two siblings, aged three and six, to death in Udo Imuk, Eket Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
The incident occurred at about 7pm on Friday.

The parents, who went out, were said to have locked the kids in their one-room apartment.
The father went to a nearby health centre for an injection while the mother went out earlier for shopping.
Neighbours said they had no idea that the kids were inside the room when the fire broke out.
The cause of the fire was a mystery because there were no electrical connections in the room.

The father Prince Ekpo, said: “I left the phone torch on in the room for the children, hoping to return soon after an injection.

“My wife earlier went out to buy something.
“I came back and saw people crowded and discovered my two children were burnt to death and we don’t know the source of the fire.”

He said Rivers people should vote wisely.

The governor spoke in his 2023 new year broadcast in Port Harcourt on Saturday.

He said: “But we must be reminded that the laws and regulations restricting open political activities in public schools and residential areas are being implemented to prevent the destructive tendencies and public nuisance usually associated with such events when things go wrong.
