Strange: Man sets His Wife Ablaze For Abandoning Him

Strange: Man sets His Wife Ablaze For Abandoning Him

Strange things keep happening in our society day in day out. While some say it's frustration, some put the blame on the devil. Either frustration or the devil, the truth is that the end is near and we should all be preparing to exit this world.
Adesanmoye Kehinde, a jilted husband  expressed his frustration after he was abandoned by his woman, Jean Odegba, 29 years, by setting her ablaze in Ikotun, Lagos State. He poured some petrol on her and lit a match to set her ablaze.
Although the wife was rescued, she suffered severe burns and she is now lying critically ill at the hospital.
The victim claimed that the husband enjoyed every benefit from her as his wife and yet he did not pay a dime to her family as dowry after repeated promises to do so.

She therefore decided to quit the four-year relationship for another man who was ready to marry her. But Kehinde insisted that she must not leave her and threatened to deal with her if she left. To prove to her that he meant the threat, he set her ablaze at the popular Ikotun round about and fled.

According to the victim, he threatened to deal with her, but she did not know he planned to set her ablaze. On the day of the incident she was going to see a friend and unknown to her Kehinde was trailing her. On getting to the Ikotun roundabout, he poured some petrol on her, lit a match and set her ablaze. She was rushed to a hospital where she has been on admission.

Kehinde who was later arrested and is now in prison custody, hails from Ondo State Southwest Nigeria while his estranged wife is from Edo State, Southsouth Nigeria. P.M.NEWS gathered that the estranged lovers had been living together as husband and wife at 2 Olaoluwa Street, Abaranje, Ikotun. The suspect was charged to Ejgbo Magistrate’s Court, Lagos on a two-count charge under section 243 and 244 of the Criminal Code Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria 2011.

When the charge was brough against him, he pleaded 'not guilty'. The prosecutor, ASP Nicholas Atunmonye objected his bail. He told the court that he was wicked to have set his wife ablaze. He added that if he was allowed to go, it will send wrong signal to the society and the victim was still lying critically ill at a hospital. The presiding magistrate, Mrs. M. B. Folami ordered him to be remanded in prison custody at Kirikiri, Apapa, Lagos pending the outcome of the medical report of his wife's illness.

The court matter was adjourned till 24th September, 2012 when the killer husband will know his fate. Naija-Things Blog Admin wants to encourage all men to be careful of how they react to family issues. Don't go to the estream.
