A woman died in a hospital after being admitted with severe burns.
According to a friend of hers who is mourning her on Facebook, the woman, named Ebere, was allegedly set ablaze by her husband.
According to the friend, Ebere travelled for her mother’s funeral preparations and returned home without her luggage. When her husband questioned her decision, she explained that she planned to travel again soon and didn’t think it was necessary to bring her belongings with her.
This reportedly enraged the husband, who poured petrol on her and set her on fire at their Lagos home.
Ebere’s injuries were so severe that she died.
According to the deceased’s friend, the husband was also burned by the fire he allegedly started and is being treated in a hospital in Lagos.
Ebere’s death sparked a Facebook discussion about domestic violence. Her injuries were so severe that she died.
