Pandemonium In Kwara As Man Set His House Ablaze With His Wife And 4 Children Inside 

The man, said to be a resident of Lekki Phase 1, Eyenkorin Area of Ilorin, Kwara State, had a disagreement with his wife before he set fire to their house on Sunday, July 3.

It was gathered that the man and his wife, who have 4 children, had been living separately due to irreconcilable differences.

The man, who left the house he shared with his wife and kids reportedly asked his wife and children to pack out of the building but the wife refused, claiming the house was a joint venture between her and the man.

The incident which hap­pened on Sunday, was con­firmed by the HOD, Media and Publicity of the Kwara State Fire Service, Hassan Adekunle. He said a resident, identi­fied as Mr. Kola, summoned the service over the incident.

Adekunle said the service was able to stop the fire and prevented it from escalating to other buildings in the neigh­bourhood.

“What we learnt was that the man can’t remember his name now, and his wife had misunderstanding about two years ago before he relocated to another of his building, leaving the wife and children behind.

“All attempts to settle the matter did not yield results and the move to also convince him to allow the wife and chil­dren live there since he had another house also failed.

“According to the report, the man suddenly appeared on Sunday and sprayed the three bedrooms flat with pet­rol before setting it ablaze with the children inside that his wife was frustrating him.”

He said it took the inter­vention of the resident who reported the incident and others for the occupants to be rescued.
