Nigerian man Ojo Joseph, 54 has been arrested by the Ondo State Police Command for burning five of his stepchildren on Sunday, November 6.
The victims were asleep when Joseph set fire into their room at the Fagun Crescent area of Ondo town.
The suspect was angry that their mother (his wife) denied him sex. Kasatintin.com has learnt that, the couple have been having misunderstandings over the issue for some time now.
One of the children was burnt to death in the inferno. Neighbours managed to save the rest of the children but they sustained minor injuries.
The victims are receiving medical treatment at the Federal Medical Centre.
