Man Sets 6 Co-Workers On Fire

A Nigerian factory worker at Amuwo Odofin, Moses Ayogu, has been arrested by the police in Lagos State, for allegedly setting six of  his colleagues on fire, leading to the death of two of them and seriously injuring  four others, now on admission  in the hospital.

According to the police prosecutor, the two victims who died in the fire attack are Lawrence Onyejekwe and John Omeren while four others, Chijioke Anayo, Titus Terkuve, Hope Effiong and Emmanuel Philip were badly burnt.

The 25-year old Ayogu allegedly sprayed insecticide on the victims and struck a match which ignited fire that burnt them badly.

The incident happened after Ayogu had a quarrel with them. The two victims died before they got to the hospital while the other four were admitted and are still  receiving treatment at Apapa General Hospital.

The management of the company promptly handed over Moses to the police at Festac Division. He is now facing  a murder charge at an  Apapa Magistrate’s Court in Lagos .

The police alleged that the offence he committed was contrary to sections 22 and 249 of  the Criminal Code Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria 2011.

His plea was not taken when the matter came up at the court.

The presiding Chief Magistrate ordered that the matter be transferred to Kirikiri Magistrate’s Court for proper arraignment.   He was remanded in Kirikiri Prison, Apapa, Lagos.
