Nigerian man publicly sets himself on fire in popular mountain garden
A man from Nigeria, who was identified simply as Muhammad, committed suicide.
The man reportedly set himself on fire Thursday in a popular government garden of forgiveness in Jos, Plateau state.
SaharaReporters reports that the incident occurred around 7:30 am.
“He arrived at Keke NAPEP (a commercial tricycle) at about 7 am and sat somewhere in the Forgiveness Gardens for about 30 minutes, after which he continued to pour fuel on his body and set himself on fire,” the source said.
According to the source, the relatives of the deceased, including his parents, later arrived at the scene and began to cry upon seeing his body.
It turned out that on Wednesday Muhammad had problems with his father.
The source added that police evacuated the victim to a hospital to confirm if she was dead.
