  44. This is really serious issue, the man want kill the wife now , so why was he afraid and went to set himself ablaze,wonderful.

  45. People should stop taken the laws into there hand they are not the giver of life. It pains me alot when i hear this of kind ugly news

  46. To me I think the man have this internal brain problem but people did not notice on time.
    Because for him to butcher is wife and set himself at ablaze something is wrong with him

  47. What kind of hopelessness could have driven him to such an action? Couples should learn to settle their differences amicably.

  48. the man must be mentally derailed, don’t know why on earth he will do that to his wife and killed him self cos of misunderstanding …wish the wife quick recovery and rip to the wife.

  49. This is so bad, what would have happened that will make the man want to kill his wife, God save the woman from dying and may the soul of the man rut in hell.

  54. Arguments and fight are normal as they can’t be ruled out but the recent murders as a result of it has become a serious problem
    I pray she survives the wounds

  55. I wonder what this world is turning to, killing his wife and finally killing himself, who will take care of the chlidren if there is any?

  56. This things sometimes, is not ordinary, some happen as a result of spiritual manipulations. One has to be prayerful.

  57. I understand, it can be painful, when things are not working out the way you expect . but is not enough reason , to kill,please never allow yourself to be depress to the extent you can reason rightly again.

  58. That is not him, that is why we need to be very prayerful and pray for our husbands as well because there is some powers that manipulated him to do what he just do

  59. This is very bad, what will he tell God now? Hmm God help us overcome all this devilish act. Wishes her quick recovery if she’s still alive

  60. I wonder what most have transpired between the man and his wife, simple miss understanding might be the cause…wicked world

  61. OMG!!! This is really bad which kind of man will be behaving like this….thank God that the wife hr butchered didn’t die…

  62. Hot temprament and fraustration has led many people to do things, well rest in peace to the dead wife and to the he can burn in hell even in the next life to come…

  63. This is so sad. Maybe he was scared of suffering in jail by life imprisonment that was why he took his own life.

  64. That man must be tormented, how can some one in his right mind butcher his wife and go ahead to set himself ablaze, only God knows.

  65. What is this world Turing into? If we keep hearing this kind of thing, hmm am afraid if we that r single will still have the mind to marry. God help us oooo

  66. Anger is a small madness. What you do when you are angry will be more than what caused the anger. Let’s manage it with the highest level of understand and silence

  67. The man is trying to escape the judgement of man now that he killed himself he will face the jugdment of God….wicked man

  68. Most Nigerian men are frustrated and they take out the frustration on anyone anyhow they think fit. Why set himself on fire he will dance to the tone of his music

  69. The worst mistake is to marry the wrong wife or husband because it will turn out to be ur worst nightmares, TWO STRANGER LIVING UNDER SAME ROOF.

  70. Things are happening in this nation, may God take control. Both of them just wasted like that and it might be a little argument that led them to this.

  71. Why are all this couples killing themselves all in the name of marriage. What message are we passing to the young ones that are ready for marriage.

  72. He knows that if the wife die finally he will face the law that is why he killed himself i guess. I wish the wife quick recovery.

  73. No matter what happens, he did.not suppose to make attempt to kill another person not to talk of himself. Maybe he is under spell

  74. Let him go and answer his call on judgement seat, thank God the wife didn’t die. I wonder what sort of anger will make u want to use weapon on ur wife, someone u have been living with for years! God forbid

  75. Acting like setting himself ablaze justifies the fact that he could actually beat/matchet his wife with a cutlass… #Barbaric

  76. Evils Everyday, God forgive us oo, that man Is something else, May his soul Rest in pieces, Quick recovery to the wife

  77. People need to calm down and see more to life than all this violence and suicide actions here and there

  78. This life is a wicked world ,this is spiritual the man can’t do this intentionally, maybe he is possessed.

  79. This is really pathetic! Partners are supposed to endure through the hard times too rather than resorting to violence.
    Know your partner well before you say I do!

  80. Jesus Christ, what an abomination, this man is a wicked man if after butchering his wife he has heart to set himself ablaze hell is calling

  81. This kind of news infuriates, angers and saddens me… Why are people just wicked.. This can even point to psychosis

  82. What a heartless human being. He thinks he’s running away from the law not knowing he’s entering into eternal condemnation.

  83. Why didn’t he butcher himself before setting himself ablaze… wicked man so he don’t wanna go to prison to suffer for his crimes but he can butcher his wife…. Women should know the kind of men they are getting married to Cox love is sometimes really stupid and blind

  84. I hope he rots in hell.what a terrible man he is.what crime can this woman commit against you that could make you end her life like that

  85. It doesn’t seem that the man is okay. If he is, he will ran away with the car instead of burning himself. It’s unfortunate.

  86. This is really cruel. I wonder why some people are heartless to the extend of the man butchering his wife. Now that he has ended his own life, what comes thereafter?, absolutely nothing. Everything is vanity upon vanity. But I will advise that let more research be conducted to know the reasons why the man did that, and what actually caused the sad incident.

  87. Drugs and alcohol at work. Only them knows what drugs and alcohol is doing for them.
    If not what type of misunderstanding could make a man to commit Murder and Suicide at the same spot…

  88. This man is evil! You butcher your wife and set your self ablaze? Hell fire straight. .you won’t escape judgement on earth and escape Hell judgement.

  89. That’s very wrong, killing wife and himself cannot solve any problem. May God help us out of frustration

  90. What is happening in this country self
    Strange things happening everywhere
    What kind of misunderstanding will lead a man to butcher is wife.
    The devil is really at work

  91. He has no place in heaven, he killed himself just because of a little misunderstanding, families that pray together stay together.

  92. Honestly thats just too bad, the way people kill these days really surprises me, may both their souls rest in peace

  93. What is really going on in this country why most he kill his wife join while can’t he kill him self alone

  94. He was lead by an unknown evil spirit to butcher his wife and the same spirit lead him into judgment of fire.God is good.I pray for the wife,may you survive the injuries and be a living witness of God’s grace .
    Whatever argument that might have lead to such disastrous scene is a work of anger and impatience. We really need to learn how to be patience and take things easy with women no matter the case.women are of weaker vessels,therefore,take heed men so that you don’t Fall into condemnation just like that man

  95. This is very heart breaking story. What is really happen to most of the the family nowadays. Let exercise patient in everything.

  96. See what frustration is causing people to do. If anyone want to the person should die alone and there spouse

  97. Family unrest, the man has mind sharing and it’s wickedness that gives that kind of mind to butcher his wife and set himself on fire.

  98. What a tragedy. It I pray d woman survives. D man is not in his correct sense for him to even set himself ablaze

  99. What could have happened between them to warrant such grievous acts, this is so complicated and confusing. Thank God the wife survived.

  100. This world is really turning to something else.May God help us and hope the lady survived this incident

  101. Stay single, problem
    Marry, another problem

    Whatever the case maybe, this is too bad.
    I wonder how people can stand the site of their wife’s blood on the ground

  102. That man shouldn’t have taken it this far..butchering the wife isn’t the best option either..what a tragedy
