The 18-year-old girl, Esther, who burnt her boyfriend, Chidinma Omah, to death in Makurdi, Benue State, has given reasons for the dastardly act.

Esther, who is currently in police custody, allegedly said she set the deceased, Omah, ablaze because he made her to abort three pregnancies and later started ‘misbehaving’.

According to her, she and Omah took a blood oath before she allowed him to deflower her.

Under oath, he promised not to leave her.

Persecondnews recalls that Omah, a patent medicine dealer, died on Tuesday January 12, 2021, from the high degree burns he suffered after his girlfriend Esther, from Ado Local Government Area of Benue state, allegedly poured fuel on him and set him ablaze.

Esther, who just gained admission into Benue State University (BSU) to study Law, also claimed that the deceased forced her to have sex with him on the night of the incident.

“I just can’t explain why I killed my boyfriend. I was just angry over all the issues we had.

“We have been fighting over some issues. Our relationship was really serious to the extent that we had to take a blood oath before I allowed him to deflower me.

“When I got pregnant for him, he gave me an injection in his medicine store to abort the pregnancy. I got pregnant the second time and he promised that we would keep it.

“Then he started misbehaving and would sometimes not even come home,” she said.

According to her, she moved in to live with Omah after he met with her family.

”He came with some people to meet with my family after which I moved in with him. Then I got pregnant for him the third time.

“We had serious problems and I moved out of his house. After our last fight, he travelled to his village for Christmas and came back on Saturday, January 9, 2021.

“The night he returned from the village, he came to look for me at our house. He started begging me and said there were things he needed to settle with me. I told him I had forgiven him, and he asked me to come to his house.

“Eventually, I decided to go to his house the following day but I was scared that he might harm me. I decided to buy some fuel from a man selling around my house. I also bought matches and went to visit him at night.

“By the time I got to his house, the main gate to the compound was already locked, so I had to go and knock at his window. He came and opened the gate for me and I entered but left the fuel outside.

“We started chatting in his room and we settled our differences. I didn’t feel like having sex with him but he forced me and had his way. After the sex, we both slept off.

“I woke up later, went outside and carried the fuel and poured it in the room, then I lit the matches. I ran out naked and went and slept inside a church,” she narrated.
