Graphic Detail: Pregnant Lady And Her Lover Burnt To Death In Lagos (Photos)

A bizarre incident which left residents stunned
occurred two weeks ago at Ojodu Street, in the
densely populated Ajegunle area of Lagos,
after a man, Buraimo Sunday, 30, and his
pregnant lover identified simply as Bose, were
burnt to death in his apartment.

The live-in lovers said to have been dating for
five years, were reportedly planning to solidify
their relationship early next year, when the
unexpected happened.

The lovebirds were inside their apartment,
watching a movie on the television penultimate
evening, when a boy reportedly kicked a
jerrican half filled with fuel, in the veranda.

The combustive substance spilled on a cooking
gas belonging to one of the tenants that was
lighted, thereby resulting in an inferno. The
fire, according to a tenant, caught the
curtains of owner of the gas cooker, spreading
to the ceiling, with everyone scurrying out of
their apartments for safety.

Crime Alert learned that by the time the
lovebirds were alerted, the fire had engulfed
the entire passage, with thick smoke billowing.

A resident, who gave his name simply as
Simeon, explained that “Sunday made every
effort to open the door but its handle was
stiff. He went to the burglary proof of the
window, shook it vigorously, in an attempt to
pull it off, yet it did not give way. We were
screaming and encouraging him to pull harder,
as we watched them from the window. Two men,
who tried to break the burglary proof of the
window from outside later, retreated when it
became too hot to hold. Even in the face of
death, Sunday was begging us to try and save
Bose. At a point, Bose began to cough. Sunday
held her and bade us good bye, as the fire
engulfed them.”

The charred remains of Sunday and Bose were
buried next day at Atan Cemetery, Yaba, with
residents wailing and giving different accounts
as to how tragedy befell the duo.
Some of the tenants who were rendered
homeless by the fire lamented their loss but
were quick to appreciate God for not losing
their lives.

One of them, Johnson, said, “Sunday and Bose
could have survived had the door opened when
he tried to escape through it. When I heard the
explosion, I thought it was from his air
conditioner. It was the Divisional Police Officer
at Tolu Police Station, CSP Udom, that led a
team of policemen to the scene from where he
called fire fighters. But by the time they
arrived, it was too late.”

Late Sunday’s immediate younger brother,
Alfred, explained that the deceased visited his
barbing salon same day to have his hair cut.
He said: “He even promised to buy a power
generating set for me next day, when I told
him the one I was using was borrowed. He did
not live to fulfil his promise, no thanks to the
fire incident.”

Continuing, the Edo state-born sibling revealed
that “as it is now, I am the only surviving child
of our parents. Our father died long ago, while
our mother travelled to the United States of
America 19 years ago. I take solace in my late
brother and looked up to him as father. Today,
I am fatherless with no brother.”

As if losing a brother was not enough
psychological and emotional trauma for
Alfred, he revealed that the family of his late
brother’s lover were demanding for a proper
burial rites for her.

He said: “How can I do such a burial? My
brother did not marry her and had no child
with her. Besides, they were not married. They
met each other back in school and had been
living together until tragedy occurred”.
