She got her self drenched in the petrol and struck a match stick and within a second she got engulfed in flames.Even before setting her self ablaze, her younger sister had tried hard to stop her from taking the dangerous decision by flinging the matchbox from her hand as any time she attempted to strike the matches the younger sister would stop her until when she became tired of stopping and went away.”“The girl then ran outside the house screaming for help until some good Samaritans arrived and put out the raging flames tormenting her. The girl’s father said he had no money to take her to the hospital as he could only boast of N750 at the time the incident happened,” he said.  Aisha who was severely burnt is being treated with Orthodox and other traditional medicines at home.The post 17-year-old girl sets herself ablaze over fiances inability to pay N17,000 dowry demanded by her father in Zamfara appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
