My Wife Frustrated Me To Set Our House Ablaze – Husband


By Wole Adedeji, Ilorin

The wife of a man in Kwara State has frustrated her husband to the point that he was left with no other option than to set their house ablaze.


The couple, according to the spokesman of the Kwara State Fire Brigade Service, Hassan Adekunle, were living at Lekki Phase One, Eyenkorin Area in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.

Adekunle said the incident happened last Sunday, and that it was “one Mr. Kola living in the couple’s neighbourhood who quickly notified the Fire Brigade about the house that was on fire.

He disclosed that the State Fire Service swiftly swung into action and succeeded in containing the ravaging fire on time and as well prevented it from spreading to other buildings in the neighbourhood.

The Fire Service spokesman said the enraged husband “deliberately sprayed his own three-bedroom flat with petrol and then set it on fire due to frustrations from his wife.”

Meanwhile, the Director of State Fire Service, Prince Falade John Olumuyiwa, has urged the general public to be more vigilant in their homes or offices especially, keeping a close watch on everyone around.
