A man has reportedly set his wife ablaze after returning from the village for her mother’s burial preparation.
It was reported that the woman simply identified as Ebere had travelled home to join others for their late mom’s burial.
She, however, returned to her base in Lagos without her loads and this stirred an angry conversation between her and her jealous husband.
Ebere had told her husband that she would go back to the village soon after he confronted her about her return with the luggages she took for the burial.
She had allegedly told him there was no need bring her load back to Lagos when she would be going back soon.
Her response reportedly angered the husband, who proceeded to pour petrol and set her on fire in their home in Lagos.
Naija News learnt that Ebere sustained injuries which she couldn’t survive.
She later died a hospital while receiving treatment.
According to reports, the husband who is receiving treatment in a hospital was also burnt by the fire he started.
A friend to the deceased identified as SisyCaro shared the disturbing incident on her Facebook page, Naija News reports.
Mourning her friend, SisyCaro advised other women to stay out of abusive and violent relationship.
She wrote: “I will keep on saying it
When u find urself in an abusive relationships pls walk away.”
Sharing about her relationship with the deceased, the netizen wrote: “Ebere the very first time we met at asolo where I came to buy food items. I was talking and having chats with those market women the vibes was so high and u stood watching me asking people who are mine?.
