Generator Fume Kills Tailor And Her Friend In Edo State

A fashion designer and her friend gave up their ghosts after breathing in discharge from an electricity generator. The deceased bodies, Nkiru Anozie and Muobuikwu Uju Kate were discovered in a shop sighted on Second East Circular road in Oredo Local Government Area of Edo state yesterday, December 12.

It was gathered that Muobuikwu, the owner of the shop had asked Anozie to help her in sewing clothes. She started the generator in order to use it through out the night, so that she can meet up with the customer's timing.

Attesting to the event that played out, her brother, Chukwudi, said that he received a call from her on Monday, but when he tried to call her back, it was not available.

“I got a call from my sister at about 2pm when she complained that her friend was getting weak. I told her to give her anointing oil.

"Minutes later, I put a call to her mobile phone to know the situation of things but she did not pick my call. So, I came here this morning and we invited the police to force the door open and that was it.” said Chukwudi

Mr. Johnson Kokumo, Commissioner of Police, who attested to the event that played out, said preliminary investigations disclosed that the women died after breathing in the discharge from the generator.

“I think they were fashion designers who must have been working all night to, probably, meet up with the demands of their customers this Yuletide,” said Kokumo.

“Maybe they (deceased) had a lot of things to get done for their customers and slept where the generator was on. So, they eventually died of the fumes of the generator. I think they did not know. We will embark on public enlightenment to enlighten members of the public that it is dangerous to the health.” he added.
