Woman set ablaze in Ogun

Ogun man, Ponle Adebanjo has reportedly burnt his wife, simply identified as Lateefat, to death for deserting him.

Adebanjo was arrested by the operatives of the Ogun State Police Command on Saturday in connection with the burning to death of his wife.

DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement on Sunday said the suspect was arrested on Saturday after concerned neighbours reported the incident to the police at the Otun-Akute division.

He said the estranged husband, Ponle, was reported to have told many people in the area that the wife had no right to live alone and vowed that no other man would be with her, after she left him due to physical abuse.

“The couple was  married for three years and resided in Otun-’Akute, until the woman, Lateefat, decided to leave him when she could no longer cope with the abuse.

“Mr Ponle was said to have gone to the residence of his ex-wife and threatened to kill her if she did not return to his house.

“Their neighbours explained that the man was fond of beating the woman, at times almost to a point of death. Their fights were said to have become a community matter as the woman was hospitalised on many occasions until she decided to pack out of his house, a month ago when she rented an apartment on the same street,” Oyeyemi explained.

Oyeyemi added that Ponle was said to have stalked the deceased’s movement to carry out his assault despite her avoiding him on many occasions and that on Thursday last week, he went to her house and threatened to burn her alive but that she managed to run away.

“Mr. Ponle went back to the victim’s house on Saturday night and met her praying. He poured petrol on her in the room and set her ablaze but the woman managed to grab him to ensure they burned together until people intervened. They were rushed to a nearby hospital where the woman was confirmed dead,” Oyeyemi added.

According to him, the was handed over to the police and has confessed to the crime, adding that he would be charged to court once he had recovered from his wounds.
