A married man, and an indigene of Benue State whose name is revealed as Nicodemus Nomyange, has burnt himself and his side babe alive at her apartment.
According to the report, the stalker man took the dreadful decision after his marriage proposal was rejected on several occasions by his long time girlfriend, Shininenge Pam.
Naija News learnt that Pam had refused to accept Nomyange’s proposal because he is married, insisting that she would prefer to marry a single man.
However, the 40-year-old man reportedly visited Pam’s residence during the weekend, locked her including himself in the room and went on to set it on fire. Efforts by neighbours to rescue the two of them were fruitless as the door was firmly locked.
