Jealous woman sets abroad-based husband ablaze, allegedly commits suicide in Osun

A housewife, identified as Ifeoluwa Bamidele, has allegedly set her husband, Bolu Bamidele, ablaze in Osogbo, Osun state capital.

According reports, the incident happened on Sunday, July 17, 2022, after the woman alleged found out her husband who based in Cairo, Egypt cheated on her and had a child outside wedlock.

A source said, Bolu built a bungalow for Ifeoluwa in Osogbo and bought her a car, adding that when Bolu returned to Nigeria to celebrate Ifeoluwa’s birthday last week, Ife discovered while going through his phone that he impregnated another woman.

“Bolu and Ifeoluwa had been on the issue for about a week before he set the private house on fire while Bolu was inside the house, locking all entrances on Sunday and fled to an unknown destination,” the source said.

It took about 40 minutes for neighbours to evacuate Bamidele from the burning house, it was said.

Gabriel Adejare said, “We were pouring sand and water and trying to break into the house through the window to rescue Bolu.

“We broke about four windows before we could get into the house. We were able to rescue Bolu after about 40 minutes when he was in the fire.

“We found him beside a burnt bed and we rushed him to a nearby hospital and he was referred to Osun State University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo and later referred to Ibadan for treatment.”

She was also reported to have left a message on her WhatsApp status, indicating that her action was premeditated.

“At this point, y’all will weep over myself and him before daybreak. I’m promising y’all that.”
