A housewife in Lagos, Mrs. Florence Njideka Chukwuma, has been arrested by the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti, Yaba, for allegedly attempting to set her husband of 18 years, Chinedu ablaze over a property.

The mother of five had allegedly bought a gallon of petrol, which she poured on Chinedu’s body. She then took a lighter to set him ablaze during a quarrel; but before she could achieve her aim, Chinedu jumped the fence and escaped, suffering injuries as a result of the attack.

She also allegedly destroyed some imported vehicles and house properties worth millions of naira and chased Chinedu out of their matrimonial home. The incident happened at No. 48, Olukotun Street, Ejigbo, where they reside before Chinedu was forced out of the house.

It was learnt that the man had filed for divorce before a Lagos High Court on grounds that he could no longer stand her alleged harassment and bullying. He claimed the traditional ruler of Nnewi in Anambra State, Kenneth Orizu, had annulled their union, but she refused to accept the decision.

According to Florence, she would not quit the marriage because she already has five children and the marriage was consummated for life. Confirming the incident, the state command’s spokesperson, Dolapo Badmos, a Superintendent of Police (SP) said investigation was ongoing on the matter.

    This is pure fallacy.

    This home actually went through what some homes do
    experience due to carelessness(on the part of both parties), but publishing a
    magnified story just to sell your papers is very bad.

    This rancor actually happened a long time ago of which the
    man have moved on with another woman in another apartment leaving the woman and
    her children in their matrimonial home.

    The foolish journalist that wrote the balderdash called the
    woman and when the woman refused to feed him with any information, he lifted
    this picture from her whatsapp then went ahead to fabricate this stories.

    I KNOW THE FAMILY AND I KNOW THE STORY,(AM NOT TAKING ANY
    SIDE THOUGH) BUT WE ARE PRAYING FOR THINGS TO NORMALIZE BUT THOSE THAT ARE
    BENEFITING FROM THIS ISSUE ARE THE ONES SPONSORING ALL THIS ONE SIDED FAKE
    NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!
