The mother of Bolutife, a Cairo-based man burnt to death by his wife, Ifeoluwa, in Koka, Osun state, has disclosed that jealousy was what made her son’s wife to set him ablaze.
Truetells Nigeria earlier reported that Ifeoluwa, a housewife, had on Sunday, July 17, set ablaze Bolutife in their Koka, Osun State home, having suspected him of having extramarital affair.
Prior to the unfortunate incident, Ife was said to have left an angry note on her Whatsaapp stories saying her man has ”pushed her to the edge, and promised that people will weep over the both of them before daybreak.”
Due to the degree of burns sustained in the incident, Bolutife eventually died at the University College Hospital, Ibadan, Oyo state, while Ifeoluwa committed sucide a day after committing the dastard act.
The grieving mother, while speaking to journalist, said Bolutife was her last child, adding that the couple got married last year September, but some members of the family had initially opposed Bolutife from getting married to her.
She said, “Apart from her being a jealous type, she was decent as a lady. She was not adulterous. She was able to last that long in our house because she was not involving in indecent act as a young lady but she used to check through her husband’s phone.
“Whenever she observed that he was chatting with anyone, even if the person was Bolutife’s elder in the family, she would become jealous.
“That was her only flaw and I used to talk to her to desist from such act. Some members of the family opposed Bolutife having her as wife but my son insisted that she was the one he liked.”
