Gas explosion kills fresh graduate while making her hair

While preparing for the compulsory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme, Mildred Amadi, a Computer Science graduate from the University of Calabar, Cross River State, has been killed from a gas explosion.

A boy ignored warnings asking him to wait for a while before lighting a gas burner. The choking smell of gas was obvious in the air at the time says a report on social media. - [Popular Science]

According to Instablog9ja in an Instagram post shared today, the victim had visited a hair place in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on Thursday, December 27, 2018, when the incident occurred.

The victim's cousin confirmed to the gossip page that she "never wanted to make her hair but her mom persuaded her to" in order to look in order.

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.
