For 11 year-old Master Emmanuel Ephraim Sunday, from Ikot Iyire, Ikot Abasi LGA, life has been hell. The Primary 4 pupil of UBE Primary School, Itam, Akwa Ibom State, has been in severe pains since Sunday, 6th May, 2018, when he sustained burns as a result of fire incidents caused by a stove explosion resulting from adulterated kerosene.

The poor boy is still agonizing in pains at the St Athanasius' Hospital, Abak Road Housing, Uyo, where he was rushed to shortly after the fire incident.

According to a family source, Emmanuel proceeded to the kitchen to light up the stove in an attempt to boil water to make garri. A source said, it was not the first time Emmanuel was operating the stove.

"His attempts to light up the stove were proving unsuccessful and on closer examination, he discovered there wasn’t kerosene in it. His nursing mother sent him, being the eldest, to buy kerosene at a filling station but since there was no product there he returned to No 4 Ikot Ndem Street, Off Calabar Itu Highway, where he bought the kerosene", the family source said.

The source further explained, "After pouring the kerosene into the stove reservoir, in an attempt to light it, that was when an explosion ensued.

"Before he knew it, fire had engulfed the whole kitchen, leaving him severely burnt. His screams for help attracted his nursing mother and neighbours who came to the rescue, put out the fire and rushed him to the hospital", the source said.

The kerosene seller, the reporter was told has refused to submit the kerosene which some neighbors alleged it is adulterated, for scrutiny

The poor Emmanuel has remained gummed to his sick bed close to two months. He always cries, as the unbearable pain tears through his body. And the ceaseless cries also bring tears to the eyes of the nurses attending to the poor boy.

Was just thinking about People who Produce/Sell Fake drugs... I just hope they know the Multiplier effect of their actions.

This is man's inhumanity to man. Just because someone wants to make ends meet, he doesn't care about the lives of others.

I console with this boy and i wish him speedy recovery. We Nigerians need to speak up in situations and don't let it slide.
The owner of the gas station should be held accountable for this. Next time, if he's still in business, he'd be more careful with his dealings and stuff like thus would reduce.

Sorry for the boy,

People fail to realize that their ''hustle'' to break pipelines and use fake refineries to refine crude oil , and sell substandard / adultrated products to their people because they think it is ''awa oyel'' will always have consequences, I pray it affects their relatives soon , that way they will understand the pain the boy and his family are going through for the past few months

Oh Lord just like the way you ended king Ahab and Jezebel do same in Nigeria I curse anyone involved in the suffering of all Goodwill Nigerians May untimely death destroy them and their supporters

A friend of mine is still fighting for his life in same Akwa Ibom state because of this same kerosene explosion. He lost his daughter to that explosion, and the second child just got discharged from the hospital last week after roughly a month in the hospital.

Why are people this wicked? Do the sellers use this same products they sell to unsuspecting public?

And why hasn't the kerosene seller been prosecuted after all this while? Even after refusing to submit the kerosene for inspection they just allowed them to go scott free to continue to sell the same kerosene to other people? This country is a shame.

Presently now the kerosene is even costly than the original kerosene and it dried off faster according to users. A big ragolis bottle of it is sold between 700 to 800 naira. The best, cheapest and fastest is gas. We should turn to the use of cooking gas and be very careful while using it. No short cut as the implications is very bad.
