The Kano State Fire Service has confirmed the death of one Zainab Yusha’u and her one-year-old boy due to an inferno.
Zainab Yusha’u, a 25-year-old woman, and her son, Sulaiman Usaini, lived at Gwarzo Road by Gidan Kaji in Kano.
Alhaji Saminu Abdullahi, the Public Relations Officer of the service, said this in a statement issued Saturday in Kano.
He said: “We received a distress call at about 07:00 am from one Usman Nura and immediately sent our rescue team to the scene at about 07:08 am.
“With the good effort of our fire personnel, we were able to bring the fire under control so as not to spread to other neighbours’ houses,” he stated.
He added that one room slightly burnt while the parlour was completely razed down by the fire, adding that “the remains of the victims were handed over to Yushau’s husband, Malam Usaini.”
Calling the attention of people, the spokesman, however, advised the general public to comply with safety regulations in order to avoid unforeseen circumstances.
