“I was coming home from work with my wife on Sunday around 7:30PM when I met Ife wearing only bra and underwear walking bear-footed.
“When I move closer to my house I noticed smoke at the house where Ife was staying, I observed for a while then I realize that the house was on fire. I rushed to the house and I met the younger sister of Ife with some elderly neighbors in front of the gate. She was the one that informed me that her elder sister and her husband were quarreling.
“She told me that the sister angrily left the house locking all the doors into the house. She said she (younger sister of Ife) had left the house to inform the elders in the neighborhood to help them settle the quarrel but before she returned to the house her sister had set the house on fire, lock all the doors and left. She informed us that the husband was still inside the house.
“Instantly, I tried to put off the fire but I could not, I called for more help in the neighborhood and we mobilize to extinguish the fire.
“We were pouring sands, water and trying to break into the house through the window so as to rescue Boluwatife.
“We broke about four windows and burglaries before we could get into the house. We were able to rescue him after about 40 minutes when he was in the fire. We found him beside burnt bed and we rushed him to a nearby hospital and he was referred to Osun State University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo and later referred to Ibadan for treatment.” He explained.
