Police narrates how Kano INEC resident officer and his family died in fire incident, rules out foul play

Kano state Police Commissioner, Mr Ibrahim Idris has narrated how Alhaji Munkaila Abdullahi, the Kano state INEC resident officer, his wife & 2 daughters were killed in a fire incident at the family's home this morning.

Speaking with newsmen this afternoon, CP Ibrahim Idris said preliminary investigation carried out by the police suggests that the fire might have been as a be as a result of an electrical fault. He ruled out foul play. What he said after the cut...


"Today (Friday) at about 4:30 a.m., the police men on guard duty at the official residence of the Resident Electoral Commissioner Kano state, Alhaji Munkaila Abdullahi located at No. 2 Sir Kashim Ibrahim Road, Nassarawa GRA, Kano, observed a fire emanating from split A/C in the sitting room. They made several attempt to get in touch with him including banging the doors and breaking some of the toilets windows but he was not responding. The police men and local guards broke the door leading to the sitting room, and discovered the sitting room was engulfed by fire and smoke.
They then went to the side of the door leading to the masters bedroom, broke the door and entered; they were not inside the bed room and the Police then went to the bathroom, inside the master bedroom and found the REC, his wife and his two daughters unconscious on the floor. They quickly removed them to Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital where the Doctor confirmed them dead. The Doctor confirmed the family died from inhalation of hot and black smoke. Meanwhile, the detectives attached to SCID sealed the scene and together with the fire service men have commenced thorough investigation into the fire incident,” he said

Where are the idiots that said is GEJ! I beg you people in the name of God leave GEJ alone! Shebi he has given you people the presidency, please leave him in peace... even though I know you lots don't know what peace! I read one comment calling GEJ a wicked and bad man, what are you people afraid of? Who is pursuing you? Just cos your heart is filled with hate, evil and violence doesn't mean others are like you! You lots can't come to terms with the fact that he conceded defeat and even congratulated your holy mallam GMB, and I can understand cos you people have never done that and can't do it so you think it's all fake and strange! Please some people pride in honour than a warped mentality of its our birthright! Leave GEJ alone please! He has made plans to stop PDP from going to court by constituting a transition Govt of which osibanjo is in, yet you blond evil that rush first to accuse others of what you are won't still leave him alone!

Bullshit story by the police! Why didn't they die before election? Why would flour of them die in a house that is spacious and non perceived the smoke to alert others. I suspect money was given and rigging wasn't achieved. Forensic experts should be brought in form US to carry out the autopsy.Tim28

The way some pple just open their wide mouths and jumb into election baffles the hell out of me. Some said it could be Jonathan, some said it could be nemesis cos he's collected bribe and all sort of rubbish. Pple sha, well I pray they should investigate d matter cos such a house with many rooms and they'r all found in d same room(I think something isn't just right somewia). Let God b d judge. RIP to the dead.

New Beginning!
I was left in tears when i read Presidents
Goodlucks
congratulatory message to Gen. Buhari
I was not crying because i felt like crying, i was not
crying cause i supported him and he lost, but i cried
cause his words arrested my emotions.
He wished his opponent a good administration
ahead, he congratulated him and accepted defeat.
I could remember by this time in 2011, Buhari never
accepted that he lost, he promised Jonathan that
he will
make his administration ungovernable for him and
he later fulfilled his promise. His supporters took to
the streets and slaughtered innocent Nigerians but
he never stopped the killings.
But today, he has won that same man that defeated
him in 2011 but got a congratulatory message
instead of threats. He has wished him success and
not promising him an ungovernable tenure.
Few weeks to the election, the people we call our
leaders were busy sending threats to themselves
and
leaving the poor masses gripped with fear. Some
people left the country with fear of the aftermath of
the election. But today you'v restored peace by
accepting defeat peacefuly.
Oh! Jonathan, you've shown us that you'r a good
man. You'v shown African leaders the true definition
of democracy. You wished not to influence the
elections with your powers, you wished not to
cancel
the election when you can do it and nothing will
happen.
Posterity will never forget you where ever you go. I
am still your fan for life. You'r a good and
gentleman
but sorrounded by ingrates and fools that care for
their pockets alone.
Oh Jona! You lost the election but won my heart....send it to all ur friends who believe in GEJ
