It was gathered that the woman set herself ablaze in her rented apartment located at the Oke-Keesi, Itoko area of Abeokuta on Saturday afternoon.

Witnesses said the woman was burnt beyond recognition and the entire building was also razed down during the unfortunate incident.

Her neighbours said the deceased had borrowed N70,000 from Lapo Microfinance bank popularly known as “Gbomu le lantern”, but got depressed over her inability to repay the loan.

Sources said the woman had sent one of her children to buy her some petrol. She then excused the little boy, locked herself up, wet the room including herself and set the house ablaze.
