A midnight inferno that razed a students hostel in Agbor, Delta State, Tuesday, has burnt two female siblings to death.
The two girls identified as Favour and Ndidi from Obiaruku in Ukwuani Local Government Area of the state, were students of College of Education, Agbor and were among those living in a private hostel adjacent the college.
According to an eyewitness, “the unfortunate incident occurred while they were sleeping in the hostel. The fire started at about midnight unknown to neighbours that the two girls were in their rooms.”
No one could say precisely what started the fire which had wreaked havoc before men of the state fire service were called in for rescue operation.
The corpses of the sisters had since been deposited at the Central Hospital, Agbor.
