However, the suspect denied being responsible for the crime. However, neighbours said she was always in the habit of fighting with her late husband.
Lagos State Deputy Police spokesman, Mr. Damasus Ozoani confirmed that she had been arrested while the husband's body has also been deposited in the mortuary, pending police investigation.
Ozoani said, "The police at Isheri Osun got a report that a woman at Ijedemo village had set her husband ablaze. When our men got there, they saw the woman trying to escape. They saw the man burnt to death.
