In Kwara State, a guy set fire to his home, which also included his wife and kids.
On Sunday, July 3, the husband, who is reported by Linda Ikeji to live in Lekki Phase 1 of the Eyenkorin Area of Ilorin, Kwara State, had an argument with his wife before setting fire to their home.
According to information obtained, the guy and his wife, who have four children, had been living apart because of their unbridgeable disputes.
According to reports, the guy requested his wife and children to leave the home they shared with him before he departed, but she refused, saying she and the man had invested jointly in it.
She declined, and on Sunday, July 3, the guy doused the house with gasoline before lighting it on fire.
Men from the state fire department said that the structure was rescued from utter destruction by their quick action.
The event was verified by Hassan Adekunle, the Kwara State Fire Service’s HOD for Media and Publicity.

He also said that all attempts to resolve the situation were unsuccessful, and the effort to persuade him to let the wife and kids reside there because he had another house was also unsuccessful.
