Nigeria and the capture of Jessica Tata

Nigerian Tribune "Jessica Tata, who has dual nationality of Nigeria and the United States, ran a day care centre out of her home in Houston, Texas, until February 24. The day care centre was licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. Tata, aged 22, began running the day care centre in March 2010 after obtaining a licence but things went dreadfully wrong on February 24, 2011.

Tata had seven children in her care and had no help. She left the children in the house, the oldest only three years old, and went shopping. Leaping flames welcomed her back to the house. Tata was momentarily transfixed with the horror of seven helpless children in a burning house, but then sprang into self-sacrificing action in an attempt to rescue the children, according to her defence counsel.
