It was all tears and mourning in Enugukwu in Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra state where a fire engulfed corpses and destroyed property at the mortuary of the General Hospital within the community.
About 50 corpses were reportedly burnt beyond recognition in the fire which started at about 6pm on Saturday, December 29.
Families and relatives who deposited their loved ones were left in shock following the incident, which to many still remain a mystery as no explanations were given as to the cause of the inferno at the mortuary.
There were speculations that due to the harmattan period, the fire might have stemmed from a bush burning nearby and had grown extremely wild due to the chemicals used at the mortuary for the preservation of corpses.
A spokesperson for the police command, SP Haruna Mohammed confirmed the incident and appealed to the people to remain calm, noting that investigations were already underway.
While admitting that the cause of the fire is still unknown, Haruna assured the people that the command will ensure that “No stone will be left unturned in order to unravel the mystery behind the incident whether it is natural or manmade.
Meanwhile, Anambra state Governor, Willie Obiano, has visited the scene of the Enugwukwu General Hospital Mortuary fire disaster to see things as they really are on the ground.
He was accompanied by the state commissioner for Health, Dr. Joe Akabuike, senior police officers and other stakeholders.
The governor upon rounding off inspection of the site condoled with families affected and reassured them of his commitment to unravelling the mystery behind the fire outbreak.
Obiano announced that a committee will be set up to look into the incident.
Man Arrested For Killing His 5 Babies Few Months After Birth
An American man has been arrested and charged with the cold-case slayings of five babies, all his own and none of them older than 6 months.
Paul Perez, 57, is accused of killing the babies from 1992 to 2001, and he was charged with five counts of first-degree murder with special circumstances that could make him eligible for capital punishment, officials said.
He was arrested on Monday after new DNA technology helped investigators reopen a cold case from 2007, the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.
Thanks to new DNA technology, authorities were able to identify a deceased infant found by a fisherman in March 2007 in a sealed container weighed down with “heavy objects” as Nikko Lee Perez, authorities said.
The identification of Nikko finally came in October 2019, and led investigators to discover that Nikko had four siblings, who were all also killed when they were less than six months old, the sheriff’s office said.
The siblings, all born in California, were identified as Kato Allen Perez, born in 1992 and known to be deceased; Mika Alena Perez, born in 1995; Nikko Lee Perez, born in 1997; and Kato Krow Perez, born in 2001. The remains of the last three infants are still unknown, People reports.
Perez has been identified as the father of all five children, but it is still unclear whether they have the same mother, authorities said.
“While I am proud of the efforts of my investigators and coroner’s office, this is not a day that will bring joy to any one of us,” Sheriff Tom Lopez said in a statement.
“In my 40 years in law enforcement, I cannot think of a case more disturbing than this one,” Lopez added. “There can be no victim more vulnerable and innocent than an infant, and unfortunately this case involves five.”
“The allegations announced today are heartbreaking. There is absolutely no place in our society for horrendous crimes against children,” California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in a statement.

I Can “Raise Kobe Bryant And His Daughter From Dead” On One Condition — Nigerian Prophet
A story is going viral online about a Nigerian Prophet Nigel Gaisie, who has allegedly made some startling claims concerning the death of the basketball, player Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna Bryant.
Nigel Gaisie while preaching and prophesying to his congregations reportedly said he is capable of raising Kobe Bryant and his daughter from the dead.
However, there are some conditions to his offer. According to the self-proclaimed man of God, he can only do so if 10% of Kobe’s net worth is given to him.
According to reports, below are his words:
“The Lord just took me into the spirit world, and I have seen a great man fall.
This news will shake the entire world because of how great this man is. I see a lot of people on social media talking about the man for weeks to come and I see a lot of sad faces.”
“America will mourn this great man. The Lord then instructed me to announce to the family of this man, the American embassy in Ghana and the entire world that He the Lord has not sanctioned the death of this man.
He again said to me, ‘Nigel, tell the family of this man and tell the entire world, should they agree to pay my tithes and offerings I will use you as a vessel to bring this man and his daughter back to life.’”
Prophet Nigel asserted that without the 10% offer, there was no way he could bring the man and his daughter back to life because that was the instruction from the Almighty God Himself.
“The man is worth 500 million dollars and should the family agree to give 10% of his income to me, I will bring them back to life. Thus sayeth the Lord! Without the money, I cannot bring him and the little girl back.”
Prophet Nigel Giasie after making these declarations asked his congregation to pray in tongues and thank the Lord for wanting to use him and their church for such a great miracle.
He went on to admonish the congregation to make sure the message reaches the American consulate in Ghana, the family of the late Kobe Bryant, and also warned his congregants not to doubt the words of Almighty Jehovah or else face some serious repercussions.
