One Mr Ojo Daniyan has been arrested for allegedly setting his wife, Dorcas, ablaze at Irese Road, Akure, #OndoState.
It was gathered that before the incident happened, the victim and her husband had had a disagreement over the proceeds of a land she had sold.
According to reports, a few hours before the incident, Daniyan brought home a keg of petrol; and some hours later, a fire started while he was in the room with the deceased.
According to Bose Richard, a younger sister to the deceased, the victim had been the one taking care of the family for a long time. “My elder sister was the person taking care of him (husband) and the five children before he eventually killed her.
This would be the third time he would be pouring petrol on his wife (my sister) with the aim of killing her and now he has finally killed her. This same woman bought two vehicles for him but he never appreciated it, instead he sold them.”
Confirming the incident, spokesperson for the police in Ondo, Femi Joseph, said that they had arrested the man with a view to investigating the case. 📷: SaharaReporters
