“Sometimes life confuses humans. Just came back home only to discover Kamsiyochukwu has been taken by death. Asked what happened?. She was engaged with a domestic accident where she was burnt by a kerosene that exploded from the lantern
This little girl went through pain throughout yesterday the incident occurred because she didn’t die immediately she was burnt(imagine the kind of pain she must have been into). Her whole body was burnt, even the grandma that was near her barely escaped though her face was burnt but she survived it.
