Mohammed had a lovey-dovey relationship with 19-year-old girl, Jemila Ibrahim, but because she was allegedly unfaithful, he dumped her like a bag of tasteless salt. And then, painful tragedy followed.
His new love was burnt and died three days later in hospital. He also lost his home and property as Jamila and another friend allegedly created hell for him by setting his lover, and humble abode in Monkey village in Festac Town, Lagos ablaze.
Jemila and friend have been arrested, while the Lagos Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu, has asked that the matter be investigated by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Panti, Lagos.
Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Lagos police spokesperson said in a statement:
