Three sisters and their cousin have been killed in their sleep by generator fumes at Aghoro, Ekeremor Local Government Area, Bayelsa State over the weekend.
The deceased were said to be primary school pupils identified as the children of Demedogha London and Stephen Binasuode. The deadly fumes emanated from a new generator placed at the balcony of Demedogha’s bungalow.
The distraught father of the deceased children, said he kept the generator at the balcony far from the room of the girls. However when he woke up at 6am the next day, he discovered that the generator had shifted close to the door of the girl’s room.
“The generator was outside but it was on tiles. The generator shifted close to the door. At about 6am, I came out to put off the generator and saw that it was close to the door. Eventually when I entered the room I saw that all the children were dead” he said
