Man commits suicide by setting himself ablaze after wife was caught having sex with errand boy

Tragedy struck at Owharen Street of Ovwian in Udu Council Area of Delta State, after a man who caught his wife in bed with their errand boy reportedly set him ablaze at their apartment.

According to an eyewitness, the deceased had in the weeks past threatened to kill himself after his wife was reportedly caught pants down with one his male messengers in the area.

It was gathered that the man returned home, locked himself, poured fuel on his body and thereafter did set himself ablaze. The inferno affected other buildings in the area, destroyed properties worth millions of naira even though the man was burnt beyond recognition.


“Some few weeks ago, his wife, Blessing was caught pant down by their neighbours with a young boy who washes the Keke of the man. The boy is one of the boys whom he usually sent on an errand in the area.

Though the wife has since left his apartment, the man returned home that day, poured fuel on his body, barricaded himself inside his apartment with an iron bar and set himself ablaze ”, the source told newsmen.

Owner of the building, Mr Nyonren Egharan while lamenting the incident said;
“ When the fire broke out, I ran to where the fire started from, broke into the apartment and tried to rescue the victim who held on to a chair and insisted that he wanted to end his life.

His action during the inferno that claimed his life fuels the suspicion that he may have set the house on fire by himself to reinforce the suicide argument . I sustained serious burnt from the raging fire while trying to rescue the victim. ”



According to Punchng, the landlord who claimed that all his life savings were consumed in the inferno appealed to the Delta State Government and Udu council to come to his rescue to enable him start life again.
