“I married a woman who set me on fire because I refused to marry her. I forgave her and we now have children together.
This all started when I was about 25 years old. I met this lady and we had a good relationship. She asked me to marry her but I told her I wasn’t thinking about marriage yet. I wasn’t sure of it.
We stopped talking about it and I felt that everything was okay. She was pretending like everything was fine but I didn’t know she had plans of killing me.
One day I came back from work tired. I had dinner and went to bed. I was in deep sleep and she bought petr0l and p0ured it on me until the entire bed was wet, then she lit up a match.
I was sleeping and I woke up burning. I thought it was something else that was on fire, but I noticed that it was me burning.
I ran out of the house and people around came to my rescue. I fell into coma and was rushed to the hospital.
Everyone abandoned me cause they thought I was going to die. I spent three years at the hospital and ran out of funds to treat myself.
One morning I woke up and I couldn’t believe what I saw. It was my girlfriend. I was very scared because I thought she had come to finish me. But she begged me for forgiveness and I was in pains. I needed someone to take care of me, so I forgave her”.
