In the same vein, some of the couple’s neighbours also reported that at the slightest misunderstanding, Blessing would lock the door, pull a kitchen knife and threaten to stab John.

Also, John’s elder brother, Chief Obodoechina Snr, explained that John told him that he had met Blessing in his office, and that he had been helping Blessing in the business she was doing with the company from where they became intimate.

Obodoechina was quoted to have said, “After about three months, Blessing started taking some of her belongings into John’s place. At that time Blessing did not know whether anyone was John’s sister or colleague in the office, so any calls from a female caller was seen as a taboo.

“He therefore informed Blessing that both of them should part ways in peace. But Blessing, apparently didn’t like the idea. The situation climaxed on August 1. That was the day John gave Blessing N100, 000 to help her secure an apartment before she set herself and John ablaze.”
