A Nigerian wife has set her husband’s house on fire as he intends to marry another woman a month after marrying her.
An angry wife, who is against her husband’s plan to marry a new wife barely two months into their marriage, insisted that it is too early to bring another woman as wife into the family.
When the husband told her of his plans to remarry, she didn’t object, but he stated that he should at least wait for some time before he begins to harbour the thoughts of marrying a new wife. The husband however refused to heed to the pleas of his wife and made known his intentions to go ahead with his plans.
According to a source, the husband, whose name was given as Yanusa, who is living very close to Ali Bagudo’s house, Badariya area, Birnin-Kebbi, lost his first wife last year and only married Aisha in February this year.
“Yunusa, who lost his first wife last year, married Aisha; but it seems that they are not on good terms. When her husband told her his intention to marry another woman, she got angry and set ablaze her husband’s house when he went out on Tuesday to his office.”
The reliable source also added that though nobody died in the inferno “most of valuable property belonging to the husband were burnt in the fire.”
It was gathered that family members came out to extinguish the inferno, and removed few of the husband’s property.
Police Public Relation Officer, DSP Suleiman Mustapha said on phone that the police did not receive any “official complaint from anybody at the nearest police station in the area.” But he promised to make investigations into the matter once the case is brought before the Command.
