A police Inspector, his wife who is also a police officer, their daughter and their brother-in-law, who is a police constable, have been burnt to death at their home in Karewa police barrack, Yola, Adamawa.
The inspector identified as Bobbo, his wife sergeant Grace, and their daughter Janada were home when the fire broke out at about 1am on Wednesday.
A newly recruited police constable who is a relative of theirs was also with them in the house. As the fire raged, neighbours were unable to help bring it under control due to the burglarproof in the house.
Adamawa deputy governor, Martins Babale visited the barrack today to sympathize with the residents over the incident.
