It appears the last has not been heard about Monday’s bomb blast in Sabon Gari, Kano, as two relatives of one of the deceased have died within three days after the tragic incident.
According to reports, Thomas Olayi Eneji, 35, from Bekarawa LGA, Cross River State, was at the venue of the incident for a drink when the blast occurred, charring his hand and face beyond recognition.
That was only the start of the tragic story, because on Tuesday this week, his grandmother was said to have given up the ghost on hearing the news of his untimely death, while his mother also died the following day (Wednesday).
Thomas, who until his death was the first son of his parents, is survived by a pregnant wife who has summarily become a widow in the wake of the incident.
His corpse was moved to Calabar yesterday amid tears of relatives and friends.
