Speaking with police, she said: “We made an arrangement that he would divorce me after the marriage. I met him and pleaded with him to divorce me, but he remained adamant.

He descended on me and started beating me instead of divorcing me, as a result of which I lost my temper and set the house ablaze.”

Hub 247 News reports that a few days before the wedding, Amina had informed her parents that she was no longer interested in the marriage.

However, her parents insisted there was no turning back as they had already distributed invitation cards.
