Woman who set husband's nephew on fire enters trial

Gift Igwe has been granted a bail of N500,000 following the first hearing but hasn't been able to meet the conditions.

The assault, which occurred in the Agunfoye area of Ikorodu, Lagos, saw the 10-year-old victim sustain grave skin impairment to his back and arm, a report by Punch News disclosed.

This could have resulted into fatality if not for the timely meddling of neighbours who heard the loud scream of a fire consumed Chimobi and rushed to the scene. He was soon taken to the hospital where he received treatment for the intense burns on his body.

Mrs. Olubukola Salami, the Director of the Office of Public Defender in the state told Punch that the victim has been taken into protective custody. The same was to be done to Igwe's four months old baby if not for the nursing arena provided at the Kirikiri Prisons where she is being held.
