More facts have emerged on the fire incident in Benue State where a married man set himself and his side chic on fire.
The 40 year old man, identified as Nicodemus Nomyange set himself and his girlfriend Shininenge Pam ablaze on saturday, 14 November 2020, at inikpi street, Markudi, Benue State.
According the Nation, Nicodemus Nomyange, married with children, has been dating Shininenge Pam for some time and recently proposed to her.
According sources, Pam turned down his proposal, saying she wouldn’t marry someone who was married already, that she would prefer a single man to marry.
The rejection of the proposal provoked anger in Nicodemus Nomyange, who proceeded to Pam’s apartment on Saturday evening and set it ablaze after locking both of them inside. The estranged lovers got burnt despite efforts to save them by neighbours.
While Nomyange died at the spot, Pam later died on her way to the hospital.
Meanwhile, the Benue Police spokeperson Kate Anene confirmed the incident. Their corpses were taken to the Federal Medical Center Makurdi and deposited by officers of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) who were at the scene .
