Muhammadu, who hails from Gadawaliwol in Jabbi Lamba, Girei Local Government Area, got someone to set fire on the couple earlier in the week, on September 6, barely two weeks after their wedding.

It was learnt on Saturday that the woman died due to severe burns while the man is receiving treatment in hospital.

It was further gathered Muhammad, who is married with four children, fell in love with the deceased and spent about N150,000 on her after she agreed to marry him.

The deceased, after collecting the money, allegedly declined the proposal and got married to another suitor, who is battling with his life at the hospital.

Muhammadu reportedly hired Ibrahim Savanna, paid him N5,000 and gave him four measures of rice to get the couple killed.

After collecting the money and the rice, Savanna, armed with petrol and matches, went to the room of the couple in the night and set it on fire after locking it up.
