A newlywed Nigerian woman allegedly killed herself after setting her husband ablaze over suspicion of infidelity.

The woman, known only as Ife murdered her husband, Bolu Teebam at their home in Osogbo after leaving an angry note on her WhatsApp stories, saying that her husband has "pushed her to the edge."

She also made a promise that people will weep over both of them before daybreak.

"I’ve always been a calm girl and I’ve never done this in my life but Teebam has pushed me to the edge. At this point, y’all will weep over myself and him before daybreak. I’m promising y’all that," she wrote.

Ife suspected that her husband was cheating on her, reports said.

The victim was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he succumbed to burn injuries.

Ife, who fled the scene after the incident, was later found dead, according to local media reports.

The cause of her death remains unclear but police say she died by suicide.

A further probe is underway.

A similar incident was reported in India’s Bhopal, where a man poured gasoline on his wife and set her ablaze by the side of the road, in full public view, after she reportedly asked him for a divorce on July 5.

The accused, identified as Raees Khan, reportedly married his 22-year-old wife, Muskan Khan, three years ago in April 2019. However, Raees recently started suspecting his wife of having an affair with another man.

The suspect allegedly became abusive and started regularly beating the victim over the unfounded cheating allegations.

After several instances of brutal domestic abuse, Muskan approached a family court to file a divorce.

Khan, who was reportedly enraged after learning of his wife seeking a divorce, followed the victim to her home village. Confronting the victim, the man doused his wife with gasoline and set her ablaze in full view of the public.

Following the incident, the officers registered a case of attempted murder and are looking for Raees who remains at large.
