An eyewitness narrated how the ugly incident happened:

"The place is actually a campus area and I happen to live there because of the nearness to school. I heard a noise outside and decided to know what's going on. At first I thought It was normal cultist fight again, not until I saw people crying.

I was so scared and asked what happened and I was told that a man poured fuel on his wife and set herĀ  ablaze and ran away.

This woman was badly burnt; the weavon she fix peeled off on her skin. Her skin was in layers and were all gone as at the time I ran out. She was rushed to the hospital but I heard hospitals are on strike, so I don't know how she's going to survive the terrible burns and pain."
