Bioreports gathered that the husband and wife are deaf and dumb while the son is barely a year old.

According to an indigene of the area, Darlington Onyelike, the victims are in a deteriorating condition and need financial support from good-spirited individuals.

He said,

“The woman and her husband are deaf and dumb. It was difficult to raise alarm when the building caught fire. Their 1 year-old-son is worst affected by the fire. The woman is pregnant and will soon put to bed. It is terrible.

“They live in a one-room apartment here in Umudike Ugiri. The family is dying slowly.”

He further disclosed that the victims are currently in a hospital and are in dire need of financial help to pay their medical bills.
