A pregnant woman who set her boyfriend’s house ablaze while he was at work, in Achussa suburb of Makurdi, Benue State, has revealed why she did it.
The incident occurred on Wednesday, April 21. According to Daily Trust, the woman, had moved out her few personal belongings before setting fire inside the house and burning all household items.
A witness who simply gave his name as Joseph, said the lady who frequently visited the man in Makurdi from her village complained that he never attempted to augment her fare back to the village, adding that on several occasion she relied on her relatives to return home even now that she is pregnant for him.
It was gathered that the couple had quarrelled on Tuesday night after she demanded transport fare to return to the village but partly settled the matter.
“Then the following morning, she waited for him to go to work, brought out her few belongings before setting the house on fire. Unfortunately for her, the residents apprehended her before she could disappear from sight. She was handed over to the vigilante but later when her boyfriend was called upon; the community prevailed on them to settle the matter quietly without involving the police,” Joseph explained.
