August 9, 2016 – Pictures Of Retired Police Officer Burnt To Ashes In Jos Yesterday

Pictured above is Retired Police ASP, Anthony Kwame who died alongside his 3 children when fire engulfed their home at Jenta Adamu area of Jos yesterday.

The only thing that remained of him was his skeleton as no firefighters were available to put out the raging fire that engulfed the house around 1:30am on Monday.

Kwame reportedly made spirited effort to open the door and free the family but the thick smoke from the fire killed him.

Neighbours were woken up by the cries for help from the children but they couldn’t help but watch in horror as the fire was too powerful to be quenched by ordinary water.

The last child of the family died in the hospital yesterday evening.

The only survivor is Kwame’s wife who is still in coma as at the time of this report.

    I know that bcos it was a retired police officer who was directly the victim here, its possible for some people to begin to think that it could be Nemesis of all the evil ways he might have dealt with people during his service days that caught up with him at last.

    But on the contrary, I want to believe that coinsidental Shit sometimes happen.
    To the entire NPF and his extended family, I extend my sincere heartfelt condolence.
    May the souls of the departed, rest in peace.

    Could this be fate, consequence from bad deed or just an accident? Nobody knows! Mankind, especially those without Holy Spirit in their hearts are terrible. Be wise folks, don’t jump into fictitious conclusion.

    So sad, an unimaginable incident, this signifies how dangerous Nigeria is,especially a place like Jos.

    There is a tendency that people were afraid to come out and help because of boko haram and fulani menace, they must be thinking attack was going on and decided to embrace themselves inside their individual homes.

    Our law enforcers know how to parade innocent people as criminals, they suppose to rescue such if they are truly patrolling to protect or hunt for criminals.
    Rip to the dead and God’s healing to survivors.
