The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, on Wednesday, commiserated with the family of a mother and her three daughters who died on Tuesday night in a fire incident at Red Bricks Quarters on Maiduguri Road, Damaturu, Yobe.
In a statement released by his Special Adviser (Media), Mr Ola Awoniyi, in Abuja, he sympathised with the government and people of Yobe State over the tragic incident.
He also commended the head of the family who bravely rescued his five-year-old son before escaping from the inferno.
However, the Senate President asked residents of the state to take precaution to avoid subsequent fire outbreaks in homes and offices, especially whenever there is a power outage.
He prayed for God’s comfort for the bereaved family and for an end to such incidents.
