A neighbour who confirmed the incident said the mother 2 children was preparing breakfast with the little girl in the kitchen when it happened.  

“We all share an open kitchen with Nyerovwo mother and that morning Nyerovwo had gone to the kitchen when we heard her screaming and we dashed out to find Nyerovwo on fire, the neighbour said. We all tried to put out the fire. Nyerovwo was rushed to Sapele Central Hospital, she told her parents that the fire incident was not intentional, that Mrs Godwin was lighting up her stove when her dress suddenly went up in flames. 

Nyerovwo was then referred to Delta State Teaching Hospital, Oghara, but unfortunately died on Friday morning. Mary has been missing since then.
