A man said to be a resident of Lekki Phase 1, Eyenkorin Area of Ilorin, Kwara State, has set his house on fire over disagreement with his wife.

The incident, which happened on Sunday, was confirmed by the HOD, Media and Publicity of the Kwara State Fire Service, Hassan Adekunle.

He said a resident simply identified as Mr. Kola summoned the service over the incident.

Adekunle in a telephone chat said the service was able to eliminate the fire and prevented it from escalating to other buildings in the neighbourhood.

“What we learnt was that the man, I can’t remember his name now, and his wife had misunderstanding about two years ago before he relocated to another of his building, leaving the wife and children behind.

“All attempts to settle the matter did not yield results and the move to also convince him to allow the wife and children live there since he had another house also failed.

“According to the report, the man suddenly appeared on Sunday and sprayed the three bedrooms flat with petrol before setting it ablaze with the children inside on the ground that his wife was frustrating him,” he said.

He added that it took the intervention of the residents who reported the incident and others for the occupants to be rescued.
