The Police in Akwa Ibom has launched manhunt for a petrol dealer who reportedly set a varsity student, Enwongo Akpan, on fire over a disagreement in Obio Akpa, Oruk Anam Local Government Area of the State.



Trouble started on Saturday, July 9, when the 200-level student of the Department of Philosophy, Akwa Ibom State University (AKSU),Obio Akpa campus, accused the roadside petrol dealer of selling adulterated product.

According to Daily Trust, Akpan bought N500 fuel from the dealer, poured it into tank of his generator but it failed to supply electricity.

He went back to the roadside petrol dealer for an explanation, believing the fuel was adulterated.

The confrontation led to an argument that resulted in the exchange of words and the petrol dealer poured the fuel on Akpan and set him ablaze.

An eyewitness, Idongesit Akpan said the dealer collected the petrol, poured it on his victim, and lit matches, setting him ablaze while others scampered for safety.

Akpan said the victim was rescued by villagers and students who rushed him to Mercy Hospital in Abak for immediate treatment, and afterwards alerted the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof Nse Essien about the incident.
