Man Who Was Denied Sex Burns Lover, Grandmother, Uncle And Two Kids

26 year old secondary school leaver, Oluwaseyi Babatola, burnt his ex lover, her mother, kids and uncle because she denied  him sex. According to him, he is now  hunted by the spirits of the children he murdered. Speaking to Punch in Abuja, he said he is being disturbed by the thought of them. Babatola,  identified his victims as Janet Isuawa; her sons, Samuel and Osaze; her cousin, Taphael; and Janet’s mother. He reported himself to the police. 

Explaining what happened, the suspect said he started dating Janet, a divorcee, sometime ago, adding that he supported her and the children financially. 

The relationship went wrong after he demanded sex, and  Janet  turned him down. He said, “Janet said my mother told her that I suffer from hernia, and that she could not date me; she called me a ‘mugu’ (fool), and said she had chopped my money. So, I went to where she was charging the phone I bought for her and took it.

“She attacked me and bit my chest, and as I struggled to free myself from her grip, her cousin, Taphael, came in and pushed me down and held me there while she beat me with her fists. After I left the house, Janet’s younger sister called me on the telephone and abused me, saying they would deal with me if I come to the house again.” Babatola stated that he moved to an area called Arab Road in Bwari, where he stayed with a friend and continued getting threats that he will be dealt with by the woman’s siblings.

“On the night of April 15, around 11pm, I went to the house and found that the gate was locked. I scaled the fence into the compound. I went towards Janet’s room and saw her sleeping, as the window was opened because there was no power supply. I went to the bathroom, where she kept a gallon of fuel and poured it into the room through the window; the room caught fire from a lighted lantern,” he said. 

He wanted to kill himself after that. “I headed for the bush to hang myself, but my phone suddenly rang and my brother told me that our house just got burnt; I told him I did it and that I was about to commit suicide. He said I should not, and persuaded me to report to the police,” Babatola added.

The technician said every night, he remembered how he used to relate with Janet’s two sons, noting that he had not been able to erase their memories from his mind.

“I can’t get them off my mind, they haunt me every time; I thought it was only Janet that was in the room, I didn’t know the children were there. I thought they had gone for a vigil with their grandmother who attended vigil every Thursday,” he said.
