Man Sets Wife Ablaze In Edo – A woman in Edo state has been hospitalized after being set ablaze by her husband.

The woman, whose name is Margeret, said her husband had promised to teach her a lesson after the disagreement. “We had a quarrel and my husband was telling me he will teach me a lesson. After the quarrel, I sat on the chair and my husband was gazing towards one direction.
“He later stood up, brought petrol and wanted to pour it on me. I immediately held the container and we were dragging it while I was shouting for help from neighbours.
“Before I knew it, he turned the petrol in a bucket, poured it on me and lit a matchstick. It was my neighbour who rushed into our apartment that put off the fire on me with water.”
