A woman has died in a hospital after she was rushed there with severe burns.
According to a friend grieving her on Facebook, the lady, called Ebere, was reportedly set aflame by her husband.
Ebere had traveled for her mother’s funeral arrangements, according to her companion, but had returned home without her bags. She stated to her husband that she planned to travel again soon and didn’t believe it was necessary to bring her belongings back with her.
This enraged her husband, who allegedly poured fuel on her and set her on fire at their home in Lagos.
Ebere’s injuries were so severe that she didn’t survive.
The husband was also burnt by the fire he allegedly started and he’s receiving treatment in a hospital in Lagos, according to the friend of the deceased.
Ebere’s death has started a conversation about domestic violence on Facebook.
