A 40- year-old man, Nicodemus Nomyange set himself and his side chic, Shininenge Pam ablaze in Benue State.
Recall that Nomyange and Pam died from the fire incident which occurred off Inikpi street, Makurdi in Benue on Saturday, November 14.
According to The Nation reports, Nomyange has been dating Pam for some time and Nomyange, who is married with children, had proposed to marry Pam, who sources said turned him down on the basis that she preferred to marry a single and not married man.
Nomyange, who was apparently hurt following rejection by Pam, proceeded to her apartment on Saturday evening and set it ablaze after locking everyone inside. The lovers got burnt despite intervention made by neighbours to save them from the fire.
