So Sad! Ex- ADC, 3 Children Killed In Fire Outbreak In Jos As Wife And One More Child Battle To Survive

Retired ASP Anthony Kwame, former Aide-de-Camp (ADC) to ex-Gov. Fidelis Tapgun of Plateau, was this morning killed in an inferno that gutted his residence in the Jenta-Adamu neighbourhood of Jos. Also killed along with the retired police officer were his two daughters, Theresa and Kerry, and son, Emmanuel.

According to Mr Terna Tyopev, the spokesman of the Plateau Police Command, Kwame’s wife, Charity and his daughter, Evelyn, survived the early morning fire disaster but sustained severe burns.

“The deceased were burnt to ashes; what were taken to the mortuary of Plateau Specialist Hospital in Jos were just the skeletons,’’ Tyopev told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

The cause of the fire was not known but neighbours told NAN that the fire started around 1 a.m. Extremely sad. May their souls rest in peace.


  1. This is very sad

    Lord have mercy

    We pray for eternal rest for them all.
