A middle-aged man, Michael Okoro, allegedly burnt himself to death after an unresolved misunderstanding with his sister in Onicha Local Government Area of Ebonyi state.

According to New Telegraph, Okoro who was angered after the misunderstanding with his sister simply identified as Joy, drenched his body in kerosene and set fire on himself.

Speaking on the incident, a witness and resident of the area who identified himself as Sylvester Eze, said Okoro had a misunderstanding with Joy, one of his sisters.

Eze said:

“Okoro had a serious misunderstanding with Joy to the extent that he brought out a machete to kill her but the girl fled.

“In anger, the man came back, grabbed a keg of kerosene, emptied it on his body and instantly lit a match on himself,”. She added that some people raised alarm but before people got to the scene to assist Okoro, he had sustained a high degree of burns. Eze further stated that Okoro was rushed to Onicha General Hospital but was referred to the Federal Teaching Hospital, FTH, Abakaliki.

Another resident of the area, Nkemdilim reportedly claimed that Okoro had a psychological problem.
