A 21-year-old man, Utochukwu Ukandu, set himself ablaze in the Agbado, Egbe area of Lagos State. The victim had reportedly told his parents he was frustrated and wanted to kill himself – but no one took him seriously until he went ahead to light himself up…

His elder brother, Ebuka, was said to have seen him setting himself ablaze and raised the alarm.

A source said, “Nobody knows exactly why he took that decision. All we know is that he had been telling his parents he would kill himself, but they did not take him serious.

“On Monday, around 9pm, he went inside the house and poured kerosene on his body. He wet the bed with the kerosene as well, including the house. He then lit a matchstick and set everywhere on fire.”

Firemen from the Lagos State Fire Service, Ikotun division, were said to have been called by a resident.

They were said to have arrived the scene just on time with 10,000 litres of water with which they doused the flames.

The victim was luckily saved, but with a high degree of burns.
