The victim allegedly said the girl hated his mother.
An eyewitness said the couple had a heated argument earlier in the day and Jude sent her packing.
Things however took a twist about 1.30am when the girl returned to the compound with three men. They tore the window nets, poured petrol into the house, and lighted a fire. Jude and his mother were sleeping in the house. They raised an alarm and neighbours rescued them. Jude however sustained serious injuries.
Jude is receiving treatment at a hospital in Gboko while his girlfriend is on the run.
