A man committed suicide yesterday Sunday, December 16th in Abia State by setting himself ablaze after butchering his wife.
The man, identified as Ejike, had a disagreement with his wife so he used a machete to hack her in Ezere, in the Isiukwuato LGA of the state.
Concerned neighbours helped rescue Ejike’s wife during the attack and they rushed her to the hospital where her condition is really critical.
Meanwhile, Ejike, fearing that his wife may not endure the attack, went into his car where he had a container of petrol, after a moment of sitting there deep in thought, poured the petrol on himself and set himself on ablaze with a match.
Efforts by passers-by to quench the flames and rescue him were unsuccessful.
