A middle- aged man has set his lover ablaze over accusations of infidelity.

The man simply identified simply as David was said to have emptied a keg of kerosene on his lover, Uchechi Okorie and set her ablaze.

David had accused Uchechi of infidelity for allegedly returning late on the fateful day.

The accusation led to a heated argument between the two before David  set her ablaze.

The victim was later rushed to a hospital, where she is receiving treatment for sustained burns.

David has been arrested and would soon appear in court.
