45 year old woman burned inside a freezer
A 45-year-old woman was burnt to death inside a deep freezer in her apartment at Enerhen, near Warri, Delta state, in the early hours of Wednesday.
The circumstances surrounding her death were still shrouded in secrecy and police have swung into action to unravel the mystery.
However, it looked like there was a fire incident, but nobody could say whether she hid inside the fridge to take cover or was murdered by persons who set the apartment ablaze.
Delta state police spokesman, Mr. Charles Muka, who confirmed the death of the woman, Wednesday, said the police were investigating the incident.
He said the fire incident took place behind Niger Yard and that during the incident, one person, identified as Tina Tseun was “got burnt and died”.
He confirmed that the charred remains of the deceased was actually found by the police “in a deep freezer in her apartment and investigation into the case has commenced with a view to unraveling the cause of the fire outbreak and deceased’s death”.
