The two lovers are reported to have had a disagreement before the incident happened.

"The first time he told me that my sister will not live in peace here in Nakuru since she had rejected him. He said it was a must he burns her. He threatened to kill her. Yesterday he found us with my sister and we were afraid that he might come for her. At around eight he came and poured petrol on us. (The first time alisema ati sister yangu hataki story yake, sister yangu ati juu ako hii Nakuru hatakaa na amani. Lazima amchome na yeye akufe. kama ni yeye kukufa na sister yangu anataka amumalize, sasa hiyo ndio ilikua demand yake. Jana akatupata tukiwa na sister yangu. Sasa tukahofia anaeza mkujia, sasa tulikua tu tumemkaisha. Hapo 8 ndio akakuja akatumwagia petrol)," Ruth Nyabaro, a victim, told KTN News.
