Residents of Aponmu community, a village on the outskirts of Akure, capital of Ondo State have been awe-struck after a 75-year-old woman allegedly set her son and members of his family ablaze.

It was gathered that the grandmother also set her daughter-in-law and two grandchildren ablaze.

The septuagenarian grandmother identified as Iforiti Oloro was accused of pouring petrol in the same residential building housing her son, Victor Oloro and his family of two, sparking off a fire.

A source, who confirmed the tragedy on Tuesday, said that the victims were rushed to the Federal Medical Hospital Owo, where the man, his wife and one of the children were confirmed dead by doctors.

“Only the firstborn survived but he’s in a critical condition as I speak with you,” the source said.
