A Nigerian man has been left in a terrible state after his newly married wife set him ablaze for cheating on her with another woman. Tragedy struck in the ancient city of Kano on Monday when a newly wedded woman set her husband and herself ablaze in Kano over alleged infidelity. It was gathered that the woman was said to have lit a petrol keg in their No 54 Middle Road residence in the Sabon Gari area of the city, which exploded, engulfing herself and the husband.
However, the husband did not die on the spot as he was rushed to a nearby hospital for medical attention where but died later, after suffering severe burns from the fire.
 It was learnt that the woman, accused her husband of infidelity, shortly after she heard a conversation of her husband with an unidentified lady over the telephone. She reportedly got angry and lit a keg of petrol within reach, which eventually exploded and engulfed their home at about 12am on Tuesday.
An eyewitness disclosed to our correspondent that the wife, who was burnt beyond recognition, died at the scene of the incident, while her husband also died at an undisclosed hospital, where he was rushed to after receiving first aid at Fortress Hospital at Sarki Yaki within the metropolis. However, another eyewitness, Mr. Emmanuel Okorie, who simply identified the late husband as Emeka, disclosing that the couple hailed from Anambra State. He said the late couple got married about five weeks ago. He said the woman whose pregnancy should be about seven-months-old, joined the husband in Kano three weeks later. Okorie, who could not establish, whether it was the alleged telephone conversation that led to the unresolved dispute, however, told our correspondent that Emeka confided in him that his mother imposed the woman on him.
When contacted, spokesperson for the Kano State Police Command, DSP Musa Magaji Majiya, said crack detectives from the Command had commenced an investigation to unravel the cause of the dispute. Meanwhile, policemen from Nomansland Division had since deposited the remains of the couple at an undisclosed mortuary.

The rage of a jealous wife. It's good she also died but she shouldn't have dragged the man with her to the grave. All for just one phone call
