Kusanu adjourned the case until Feb. 19. Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Jimah Iseghede, told the court that the defendant committed the crime on Dec. 7, 2019, at 10.00a.m. at No. G549, Army Post Service Estate, Iba Town.Read Here and here  He said that the defendant set ablaze his girlfriend because he suspected she was cheating on him.
