An inferno on Friday not only razed down a house at Zuba area of Abuja, also took the life of an 11-year-old boy. The incident reportedly happened when Muslim residents went to observe Friday Juma'at prayers.
The victim, identified simply as Suleiman, who was sick, was sleeping when the fire started. He said when the women in the house saw the fire they ran out to raise alarm.
Residents, who rushed to the house with buckets of water to put out the fire and rescue the boy could not succeed.
