|Generator Fumes death's in Nigeria are growing.
just so sad,annoying and disgusting.I have lost counts of how many deaths has resulted due to power failure or lack of it in Nigeria.People have died of generator fumes,fire-where they had to light a candle which later caught fire and burnt them to death,people dying on the operating table at hospitals by the sudden power failure or operations being delayed,which eventually led to deaths and many more circumstances alike.
But do our government care? Of cos they don't! It is a disgrace that in this day and age with all our resources,we still can't boast of uninterrupted electricity.We have Gas,Oil,Wealth.Instead our leaders stuff our billions into their pockets!
|Sad scene,dead family from generator fumes in Ikorordu Lagos.
Excuse my ranting,here's the story of how that poor family of 5 lost their lives...
Generator fumes has killed a man, his wife and all his 3 children in Ipoyewa community of Ikorodu, Lagos. The bodies of the family was discovered by neighbours last Friday September 12th in their home. All five suffocated to death after inhaling fumes from a generator which they'd kept in their room. According to neighbours, the man bought the generator just two days before the unfortunate incident and was afraid it will be stolen if left outside so he kept it inside his 2-room apartment.
When the family failed to come out late Friday morning, a neighbour peeped through their window, saw bodies, and alerted others. They broke down the door to discover the horror. And when I say horror, I mean horror. The photos are really graphic so please be warned.
Residents of the community are blaming the family's deaths on lack of power in the area. They claim the last time they had light was 3 years ago, that every house in the area uses a generator. They said they have called on the government many times to help them with light but their efforts have yielded no fruit. See the pics after the cut.. *warning - graphic content*
People need to be educated about the dangers of generator fumes...
