Late Kwanmi was a former aide-de-camp to ex-civilian governor of the state, Mr. Fidelis Tapgun, and he died in the fire
that burnt his house alongside, four of his children, Theresa, Thomas, Emmanuel and Kerry.

A family of seven, report said only wife of the retired police officer, and one of their children managed to survive
but are currently at the Bingham University Teaching Hospital (Jankwano), Jos.

It was said the family had gone to bed late having watched the Nigeria’s Under-23 football team beat Sweden in the ongoing Rio Olympic.

“The meter was mounted at the entrance to the building. There was a spark from the meter which started the fire. Because the meter was at the entrance, the fire prevented them from escaping. It quickly spread to other rooms in the house,” an eyewitness who was directly involved in the post-fire rescue told Punch.
