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.

but are currently at the Bingham University Teaching Hospital (Jankwano), Jos.

It quickly spread to other rooms in the house,” an eyewitness who was directly involved in the post-fire rescue told Punch.
