The police in Osun say efforts are being made to apprehend a lady who was said to have set her husband ablaze.
On Wednesday, reports surfaced that the lady was on the run after allegedly setting her husband on fire over “infidelity”.
There were other reports that claimed the suspect committed suicide in Osogbo, the state capital, where the incident occurred.
Sources alleged she left an angry note on her WhatsApp stories, saying her man had pushed her “to the edge”.
“I’ve always been a calm girl and I’ve never done this in my life but Teebam has pushed me to the edge,” the alleged WhatsApp note reads.
“At this point y’all will weep over myself and him before daybreak. I’m promising y’all that!!!”
It was gathered that the man lives in Cairo and was on a visit to his home in Nigeria before the arson that killed him.
When TheCable Lifestyle contacted Yemisi Opalola, the Osun police PRO, to ascertain the facts of the case, she revealed the identity of the woman as Akanji Ifeoluwa Haddasah and the man as Bolu Bamidele.
The PRO said the incident occurred on July 17 at about 11:30 pm at their home in Koka community, Ibokun LGA.
Opalola said the victim was rushed to the Osogbo Central Hospital and was later referred to UCH Ibadan.
The PRO, who did not reveal further details on the case, said Bamidele passed away on Tuesday at about 4 pm.
Opalola, when questioned further, denied claims that the culprit committed suicide after the incident.
A photo of Bamidele made available to this reporter showed the victim naked on the hospital bed with severe burns.
“Effort is in top gear to arrest the fleeing wife,” the Osun state police spokesperson added.
