Two siblings injured in Anambra kerosene explosion


Two siblings – Chinenye Ezeh (16) and Kamsi Ezeh (8) – were injured in a kerosene explosion in Ogbunike, Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra State, it was learnt yesterday.


A neighbour said Kamsi brought out the kerosene container for Chinenye to fill a lantern after a power outage. Chinenye did not put out the light before refilling the lantern.

“The lantern suddenly exploded, leaving both of them severely injured,” he said.

He added that the victims were rushed to First Foundation Hospital and Maternity, Umunnachi, where they were being treated.

Their father, Mr. Godwin Ikechukwu Ezeh, from Imezi Owa in Ezeagu Local Government Area of Enugu State, appealed to both Anambra and Enugu State governments and spirited individuals to assist them in offsetting the hospital bills.
