The father of the deceased, Mr. Okechukwu Oke, 53, said that they did not know who Ogbonna was as he had not come to them to ask for the hand of their daughter in marriage.

Mr. Oke wondered why the man should be jealous to the point of wasting the life of their promising daughter.

When the fire raged, Winifred’s neighbours raised alarm and made efforts to rescue her.
