Ms Glory Etim-Akpan, mother of the child, told NAN that her child was sick and so she went out to a pharmacy in the area to get drugs and pampers for her, explaining that she left the child, a baby girl, Kate Dickson, at home sleeping, while the candlelight was burning.

"My baby was having cough and catarrh, so I decided to go out to buy drugs and pampers for her. Before I went out of the house, I lighted a candle on top of a metal plate in our room.

"I didn’t even get to the pharmacy when I was called that our house was on fire. And It was not up to 30 minutes that I left the house.

"Also, I lost all my properties including my certificates. The fire burnt down my apartment completely," she lamented.

According to Etim-Akpan, her life has been shattered because she has nowhere to stay, no food to eat, and no clothes to wear.
