From the report, it was gathered that Amadi died because a boy neglected safety standards.

Before lighting the burner of a camp gas cylinder, he was advised to take precaution because there was gas noticeable in the air.

Mildred Amadi was taken to a medical center in Port Harcourt for treatment but she died there on Saturday, January 12, 2019, according to reports.
