Accident Scene

The principal of the school, Mrs Victoria Gusa, told our correspondent on Tuesday that the incident occurred on Sunday as Mekiah was cooking in her room in the hostel.

 According to the principal, the explosion occurred at the third floor of the hostel and was caused by faulty gas cylinder.

PUNCH Metro gathered that the fire burnt the ceiling and some items in the room before it was put out.

“Stella had returned from church and was preparing her lunch inside her hostel when the gas cooker exploded and burnt her severely.

“Her hair was burnt, as well as her abdomen.  She is at the intensive unit of the Federal Medical Centere, Apir. She lost a lot of fluid. Although she talks, it is incoherent,” the principal said.

 The state Deputy Governor, Benson Abounu, who visited the school, frowned at the situation where students cooked inside the hostel, saying, “This is highly unacceptable.”

Abounu also condemned the absence of a central dining hall at the institution and instructed the Commissioner for Health Mrs.  Cecilia Ojabo, to address “this anomaly.”

At the time our correspondent visited the federal medical center on Tuesday, officials of the hospital refused access to her.
