Man dies after he was set ablaze during a fight with friend

An unidentified man has died yesterday after he was allegedly set ablaze during a fight with his friend in Lekki area of Lagos. Another affected person was said to have sustained severe burns and receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital in the area.

It was explained that a fight broke out between the friends in Awoyaya Elefo area of the Peninsula during which one of them was said to have set ablaze, a shanty occupied by his rival.
A lot of these shanties are poorly built and mostly made of wood, which makes them easily inflammable.

The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, spokesman Ibrahim Farinloye, who confirmed the incident, said: “Another person that was severely injured is presently receiving medical treatment in the hospital.”
