“Their room is outside the house. They came back Friday night at about 11pm, and then my brother knocked at my door, he collected kasco, (a local room warmer) which their light chacoal in it.”

Alhaji Labiru further explained that he smelt offensive odour and tried tracing where the odour was coming from

“I looked at our kitchen thinking my wife had plugged something, when electricity was restored, which might have burnt something, I discovered that the odour was not from there.

“The window to their room is inside the house. When I was about going to open the main gate to my house, I smelled the odour again. I then slide their window, and smoke with the smell oozed out.

“I severally shouted Saminu, he did not respond. I then called my neighbour, we forced the door to their room open, but we couldn’t enter, because of the intensity of the smoke.

“We later found them dead. I thought they were suffocated by the charcoal and probably one of them had attempted trying opening the door. But it was the warmer that caught fire and burnt them to death.

However, In the last three days, temperature in Jos, has been fluctuating between 6.7 to 9 degrees Celsius.
