“As he bent down, I went from my shop to buy vegetable oil from the next shop, which I would use to fry the fish that I sell. The boy did not know that there was a fire in their shop. My mind kept on telling me to go back to my shop because I had forgotten the container I wanted to use to buy vegetable oil.”

“So my mind told me that I should go back to my shop. I was not far from the shop when I was going back and that’s when I heard gbum! That was when I and everyone nearby started running. Before we knew it, the second cylinder blew up too. I jumped into the shop where the neighbor’s children were cooking and that’s when the fire started.” She said
