“This is not the first time Hassana has been trying to burn this house down. She has been setting fire before now but whenever she set the fire, it is quickly discovered and put out. Unfortunately, she seem to have set this one late at night and it was only discovered when the entire building had cought fire.” said a member of the Afobomhe family in anonymity.


Thankfully, even though a lot of electrical items and other materials were lost to the fire, no physical injury was caused and no life was lost.
