Bayelsa Former Commissioner's Son, Fiancee Burnt To Death

Mr Mientei Ayawei, son of former Bayelsa State Commissioner for Housing and Urban Development, Chief Nimibofa Ayaweu and his fiancee, a final year student of Niger delta university identified as Happiness were burnt to death in an apartment.

The fire incident which occurred on Saturday started around 4am due to high electricity voltage.

The fire which razed almost all the rooms and property in the one storey building, adjacent to Dannielo Pulp filling station owned by the former commissioner, started from the apartment where Mientei and Happiness were sleeping.

The deceased got knowledge of the fire when the whole room they were in had been covered by smoke and fire. However, two other persons who were in another room in the house managed to escape death by whisker.

Thank God for the presence of the firefighters who saved other buildings in the area including the Daniello Pulo filling station from being consumed.

May their souls rest in peace.
