GRAPHIC PHOTO: Girl 17-year-old sets self ablaze over fiance's inability to 17k bride price




A 17-yr-old Nigerian girl identify only as Aisha living at Albarkawa, Gusau, Zamfara state, on Sunday, allegedly set herself ablaze due to her fiance’s inability to pay for the N17,000 bride price demanded by her father.

THEWATCH NEWS gathered that, she decided to commit suicide after she learned that her fiancé, Umar, who dated her for quite a long time, has no money to pay for her bride price in preparation for her wedding.

A neighbor was quoted as saying: “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 her own life 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 passer-by got attracted by her voice and decided to follow her 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.” Aisha is now being treated with Orthodox and other traditional medicines at home.
