A great tragedy befell Blessing Timidi Digha and her family on June 23, 2018, as they lost two children in a terrible fire outbreak.
The devastated woman took to her Facebook to grieve on her lost as she threatened to kill herself. The fire was said to have occurred from a gas explosion.
The lady's husband Olabode took to his Twitter to lament, regretting how he failed his children by not protecting them enough.
He recounted how he had struggled hard to provide for them and was always supportive of their dreams, adding that it's so devastating to lose them to the cold hands of death.
He tweeted: "Why were my kids punished for my sins?
"We were working our lives out to give these kids head start in life, they were our inspiration and somehow they were taken from us. 'God knows best' abi?
"As young as they were , they seemed to know what they wanted. Damilare and Itunu said they were going to become doctors. I swore to give it my all so as to realise this dream but I couldn't save them from the hands of death. What a father"
