Two kids die in inferno after mom locked them in, went out with boyfriend

Two children have reportedly died after their mother locked them in a room and went out with her boyfriend to spend the night.

Scene of the fire disaster

This is really a sad incident as reported by eyewitnesses how a single mother of three, locked her children in a room and went out to spend the night with a man who promised to pay her N2,000, only for her to come back and meet two of the children dead from a fire disaster that consumed the plank house she lived in.

The tragic incident happened in Port Harcourt, Rivers State and this is how the witness narrated it:

"A single mother of three, left her three children to go and hustle for 2k. She went with her client for the night for just 2k. She left her kids, two boys and a girl, locked up inside the room with the candle light on.

From 11:58pm, the room burnt down, affecting her neighbors and killing her first son and daughter. Only one of them survived the fire.

Her husband had died leaving her to struggle for the kids and all she can do is to sell her body.

The police came and arrested her as she returned this morning. She confessed that the man paid her 2k for the night and she used 200 for transport.

This same woman also gave birth to a baby boy few months ago in her room and left the baby to bleed to death through his placenta.

She lives in Bacher, in Akar road, Rumolumini Community, Obiakpo LGA, of Rivers State."

What a shame!

In November, 2014, a woman in Jos, Plateau State, who could not take her boyfriend's treachery, locked her two children in a room with the candle light on and went to fight her rival. Upon her return,  the house had caught fire, burning her children, aged four and two, to death.
