Weird! Jilted Woman Leaves Two Kids To Burn To Death
A woman who felt she could get back at a man who jilted her now has more regrets as her two children, aged four and two, lost their lives in a fire that gutted their apartment at Kabong area of Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State, while she was away trying to confront her lover for having another woman.
The kids, according to information, were said to have been locked in a room by their single mother whose name was given as Talatu, a local beer seller in the area, when she allegedly left them for an unknown destination on Sunday night and did not return until 2am the following day, only to find that her apartment had been gutted by fire said to have been ignited by a candle she lit in the room before going out. And painfully, her kids died in the raging inferno.
A neighbour said:
Talatu abandoned the children in her room and went to confront her fiance, who had suddenly picked another lady to marry.
She lit a candle before leaving. But before she returned, the candle had burnt low and lit the mattress. The children got burnt without anyone knowing.
One of the children died in the inferno, while the other who was rushed to the hospital also gave up the ghost.
