When they tried to escape, the deceased persons detected that the door to the hall had been locked with a red padlock so they started screaming for help.

As their scream attracted people in the house and broke into the room, they realized that the two persons were badly burnt so they rushed them to the Oda Government Hospital.

Tiwaa died immediately she reached the hospital but Osam was treated and was referred to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital for specialist attention the following day.
