April 7, 2016 – Picture: Explosion Kills Father & Daughter While Pouring Petrol Into Generator Near A Burning Stove In Somolu Lagos

Alhaji Kamorudeen Ajibade and his daughters lost their lives earlier this week in a tragic explosion that rocked their house in Somolu area of Lagos.

The incident which happened around 10pm on Tuesday at No 5 Adebiyi Street in Somolu area of Lagos killed 65-year-old Mr Ajibade and his two daughters (19-year-old Wuraola and 15-year-old Shakirat).

The deceased was pouring petrol inside his generator beside a burning stove when Shakirat held the torchlight for him.

Few minutes later, the generator exploded on the two.

The sound of the explosion caught Wuraola’s attention who fell into the fire while trying to rescue her dad and sister.

The wife of the deceased, Mrs Rachael Ajibade fled the scene naked with her last child when the whole house went up in flames.

May their souls rest in peace (amen).

    Tragic. Why would they make that kind of mistake? May God comfort this woman!

    We should learn to NEVER refuel our generators in the proximity of a naked flame or while it is on.

    when death starts calling,you loose your senses
    how can you be at close range pouring an explosive spirit next to a burning stove/fire

    was it that you guys wanted to make use of the generator in the kitchen or what really happened

    since apc gained entry into the center,its been massive deaths,
    whats happening
    i blame buhari,if there had been stable electricity,this tragic incident wont have happened
