By Umar Yusuf

A police Inspector, identified as Bobbo, his wife, Sergeant Grace, their daughter and a constable have been burnt to death in an early morning fire at Karewa Police Barracks in Yola, Adamawa State, yesterday.

The Command Public Relations Officer, Othman Abubakar, said the incident occurred around 1a.m. and the cause of the fire is being investigated.

“Inspector Bobbo, his wife, Sergeant Grace, their daughter and a newly-recruited constable, who is a relative and was squatting with them, were all killed in the unfortunate incident,” Abubakar said.

Some residents of the barracks said efforts to put out the fire and rescue the victims were not successful due to the burglary proof in the house.
