Teenager Sets Girlfriend Ablaze For Cheating In Lagos

An 18-year-old suspected online fraudster, Victor Oji, who allegedly set his girlfriend ablaze in Iba Town in Ojo Lagos, was remanded on Tuesday by an Ebute Meta Magistrates’ Court.

The Magistrate, Mrs A. Kusanu, did not take the teenager’s plea, but ordered that he be kept at the Ikoyi Custodial Centre, Lagos, pending advice from the state director of public prosecutions.

Kusanu adjourned the case until Feb. 19.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Jimah Iseghede, told the court that the defendant committed the murder on Dec. 7, 2019, at 10.00a.m. at No. G549, Army Post Service Estate, Iba Town.

He said that the defendant set ablaze his girlfriend – Tolani Mariam, 24 – because he suspected she was cheating on him.

According to the prosecutor, the deceased told the defendant that she was going to visit her sister who put to bed, adding that she returned to the boyfriend some days later.

Iseghede said the defendant later saw in the girlfriend’s phone, a video of her in a hotel taking hard drugs.

This, he said, triggered his action.

The prosecutor noted that murder contravened Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015, and carried death penalty
