Porridge

Three children have reputedly died in Bauchi after an extremely hot porridge being transported in a tricycle, poured in them.

The children, aged between nine months and nine years, according to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

It was reported that the porridge was being transported in a jumbo-size plastic flask when the tricycle plunged into a pothole and upturned, emptying its contents on the occupants of the tricycle.

A relation of the victims, Auwal Bala, who spoke of the tragedy to NAN, said it occurred on Wednesday while the family was celebrating the marriage of a member.

“Three women and six children were inside the tricycle conveying the porridge, known as ‘gwate’ in local parlance, to the venue of the celebration.

“The flask containing the porridge was placed inside the tricycle at the top rear and when the tricycle plunged into a large pothole, it somersaulted and the extremely hot content of the flask poured on the children on their heads, shoulders and chests.

“Three of the children, namely Aniya Yahaya, six years; Mariam Mohammed, nine years and Ibrahim Yusuf, nine months, died from serious burns, while a fourth child, Khadijah Usman, aged seven, is currently in critical condition”, said Bala.

He said one of the women also sustained injuries, while the remaining two children and two women escaped unhurt. He said losing three members of the family, mostly children, was most traumatic, but added that they had since gone ‘philosophical’ about the incident.

“God giveth, God taketh, and who are we to question the will of God”, he said.
