More facts have emerged on why 40- year-old Nicodemus Nomyange set himself and his girlfriend, Shininenge Pam, ablaze.

According to reports, Nomyange has been seeing Pam for some time. It was learnt Nomyange, who is married with children, offered to marry Pam, who sources revealed that she turned him down on the grounds that she fancied a single and not married man.

The rebuttal bruised Nomyange, who moved to her flat on Saturday evening and set it ablaze after locking everyone in. The estranged partners got burnt despite efforts to save them by neighbours.

While Nomyange died at the spot, Pam later died on her way to the hospital.
Benue Police spokesperson Kate Anene verified the incident. Their bodies were delivered to the Federal Medical Center Makurdi and deposited by officers of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) who were at the scene.
