Drama as 17-year-old girl sets herself ablaze over fiance’s inability to pay dowry

A 17-year-old girl, identified as Aisha, who has been courting her fiancee for a while, sets herself ablaze over her finance’s to marry her due to inability to pay f 17,000 dowry.

Daily Trust gathered that from a neighbour that Aisha decided to commit suicide after she discovered that her fiance who dated her for quite a long time has no money to pay for dowry in preparation for her wedding.

He told daily post that the 17-year-old’s parent told her lover, called Umar, to present himself to her family for the marital engagement but the young man told her parent that he was able to pay for the N17,000 as dowry.

He further said:

“She brought a gallon of petrol and a matchbox. She got her self drenched in the petrol and struck a match stick and within a second she got engulfed in flames.Even before setting her self ablaze, her younger sister had tried hard to stop her from taking the dangerous decision by flinging the matchbox from her hand as any time she attempted to strike the matches the younger sister would stop her until when she became tired of stopping and went away.”

“The girl then ran outside the house screaming for help until some good Samaritans arrived and put out the raging flames tormenting her. The girl’s father said he had no money to take her to the hospital as he could only boast of N750 at the time the incident happened,” he said.

Aisha, unfortunately, suffered severe burns and is now being treated at home with orthodox and other traditional treatments.
