Aboubacarr Drammah, 40 paid tribute to his wife Fatoumatta Hydara and their two young daughters Naeemah Drammeh, aged one, and Fatimah Drammeh, 3. Fatimah and Naeemah were taken to hospital following the fire in Fairisle Close, Clifton, in the early hours of Sunday, but nothing could be done to save them.

Their mother Fatoumatta, 28 was placed on a life support machine but died on Tuesday morning.

Paying tribute Mr Drammeh, who flew back from America following the fire, said he lost his family in “such a tragic way”.

He described Fatoumtta as someone who “wouldn’t have the heart to hurt a fly”.

Mr Drammah said: “Fatoumatta had lived a short but very beautiful and fulfilling life. A former voluntary worker, Fatoumatta was a very happy, bubbly woman who wouldn’t have the heart to hurt a fly. It is therefore inconceivable to think who might have committed this cruel crime against my family.

“We thank the Ahmadi Muslim community in Nottinghamshire, the Gambian community, the local neighbours and all those well-wishers for their continuous support in this difficult time.

“I and my in-laws are left without any daughters, grandchildren and nieces. I will deeply miss my family.”

Following their deaths Nottinham Police launched a joint investigation with the fire service where they found the blaze was deliberately started and a triple murder investigation was launched.

A 31-year-old man from Clifton who was arrested on Sunday night remains in custody for questioning.

Police continue to understad the full circumstances surrounding the fatal fire.
