The Prosecutor, Felix Ifijen, who arraigned the accused on August 29, had told the court that Ms. Iroakasi set ablaze the housekeeper, Bassey, on July 27 at her residence, No. 7 Adeniran Ogunsanya, Surulere, Lagos.

The case was in August adjourned pending the DPP’s report, while the accused was remanded in prison.

What!... Shocked  Wickedness!....Whatever the girl did does not warrant you to set her ablaze. You could've just make her leave. And if she did nothing bad, then that's even worse. Lemme ot say people like you will be set ablaze in hell for eternity, but hell is real. Rest in peace young girl.
