A Nigerian man, identified as Stanley Obi, is in critical condition at Royal Brisbane Hospital after his former partner and mother of his kids set him and his current girlfriend ablaze in New Beith, Brisbane’s southern suburbs, Australia.
Obi was at his home just before 3am on Thursday, March 10, when his ex Sarah Mudge, 31, broke into the house, stormed into his bedroom and doused him and his new lover with petrol, before setting them on fire.
According to Queensland Police, Sarah tried to set Obi and his new lover on fire while his three young children were in the house.
However, the only person the mother-of-four managed to kill was herself.
Obi’s new girlfriend, 30, escaped with burns to her airway along with all three children – aged five, three and two.
Hero neighbour known as Al dragged out Obi’s burning body from the building.
Al stayed with Obi, who suffered burns to 90 per cent of his body, until an ambulance came 35 minutes later.
