The command spokesman, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident iN a statement on Friday, said the mother of three children allegedly poured petroleum on her victim and subsequently set her ablaze after a disagreement.

Oyeyemi said the suspect was arrested following a report lodged at the Onipanu divisional headquarters by the husband of the deceased, one Fatai Olugbade.

He said Olugbade reported that sometime in August 2021, he accused his wife of having extra marital affair with one Ismail Wasiu, and that to his surprise, the said wife packed out of his house and moved to the house of Ismail Wasiu.

He said, “Fatai further reported that on the 14th of November 2021, he learnt that the wife of Ismail Wasiu had an argument with his wife, and the said Wasiu’s wife poured petrol on her and set her ablaze.

“However the deceased was rushed to the hospital by her family members but later gave up the ghost while receiving treatment.

“Upon the report, the DPO, Onipanu division, in Ota, CSP Bamidele Job, quickly mobilised his men and moved to the scene where the husband of Kehinde who had asked his wife to run away was arrested.

“The case was transferred to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation. CSP Femi Olabode-led homicide team embarked on a technical and intelligence based investigation which led to the arrest of the suspect, Kehinde Wasiu, in the Saki area of Oyo State.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect and her husband initially lied to the family of the deceased that it was cooking gas that exploded and burnt the deceased. But when the lie was exposed, the husband quickly asked the wife to run away.”

Oyeyemi said the commissioner of police, Lanre Bankole, had ordered speedy conclusion of the investigation of the matter, with the view to charging the case to court.

KanyiDaily had also reported how a man was allegedly burnt to death by her husband because she travelled to the village for her mother’s burial preparation.
