Grandmother who set her son, daughter-in-law, and Grandchildren ablaze passes away
Grandmother Iforiti Oloro, 75, died after setting fire to her son, daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren in Ondo State.
According to reports, the grandmother, Mrs. Oloro, who suffered minor burns in the fire, died over the weekend in an undisclosed hospital.
In a phone conversation with the Peoples Gazette, a source who requested anonymity said,
“The old woman (Iforiti) is dead after sustaining some burns in the fire incident. She was taken to the hospital but we got the information that she’s dead.”
On Saturday, March 18, the senior citizen who lived with her son at Aponmu Community on Ondo-Akure Road set fire to the house while the family was sleeping.
Some neighbors broke in through the window and rescued her son, Victor Oloro, as well as her wife, Rachael, and their children, Toluwani and Blessing.
They were taken to the Federal Medical Center (FMC) in Owo for treatment. Victor and his wife died while their children were reportedly receiving treatment.
Iforiti Oloro, the grandmother, admitted to journalists after the incident that she burned her son and his family because they were starving her.
Mrs. Oloro’s death was also confirmed by a police investigator in the case, who stated, “Yes, she is dead. She has been moved to the morgue.”
