A young man simply identified as Jude, was set ablaze by his girlfriend yesterday, December 7 in Gboko south, Benue state.
The reason for her action can be traced to the guy’s refusal to marry her due to her misbehaviour and hatred towards his mother.
According to an eyewitness account, they had had a heated argument earlier in the day, where the said boyfriend asked her to pack out of his house.
About 1.30am, the girlfriend reportedly returned to the compound with three men, they tore open the nets at the window and started pouring a substance into the room, suspected to be petrol, through the window.
The young man who is currently receiving treatment at a nearby Hospital, reveal that he saw the girlfriend himself from the inside as she was pulling off the nets.
The girlfriend threw a container into the room where he was, with his mother and another 2yr old child and immediately lit a match stick and took off. It was later learnt she had parked a bike outside the house.
One of the neighbours who claimed to have witnessed the incidence further stated that, the girlfriend had padlocked the door from the outside.
The whole room caught fire, and the young man, confused and helpless battled to save his mother and the little child in the room.
His cries for help woke neighbours around who rushed to see what was happening. They met a burning room and three people battling to escape from the fire. They broke the door, managed to put out the fire and rushed the young man to the hospital.
Although all three persons in the room are still alive, the young man is left with severe burns from the fire incidence. His mother and the child were however not terribly affected, just minor burns here and there.
The said girlfriend appears to be on the run as she is nowhere to be found.
