One of the casualties of the recent ill-fated explosion in Kano has been identified as Lydia Dantata, a nursing student.
This was confirmed Kaduna State College of Nursing and Midwifery who says victim of a fire incident that started at a petrol filling station opposite its Kafanchan campus.
According to reports, about 10 students of the school were caught in the fire which occurred at the petrol station where they had gone to charge their phones last Tuesday because there was a state-wide power outage that followed the five-day warning strike embarked upon by members of the Nigeria Labour Congress last week.
As sighted on Instablog9ja, the overseer of the campus, Ephraim Dyages, said on Monday that Dantata died at about 3 am at Jos University Teaching University (JUTH) where she was receiving treatment alongside another student after they sustained first-degree burns.
Meanwhile, friends have taken to social media to pen tributes to Lydia.
