17-year-old Aisha, who set herself ablaze over fiance’s inability to pay N17,000 dowry demanded by her father in Zamfara, has been taken to the hospital.

It is said that former Zamfara State Deputy Governor, Malam Ibrahim Wakkala, is footing the medical bill, as the girl’s father said he had no money to take her to the hospital.

Aisha tried to commit suicide on Sunday August 8, in Albarkawa area in Gusau, owing to her fiance’s inability to marry her due to his poor finances.
