A 38-year-old woman, Comfort Agboloshie, has set her husband and her brother-in-law on fire in Accra.
Police say she set fire to items of clothing soaked in kerosene, threw them into a room where her 45-year-old husband, Lawrence Nkem, and her 42-year-old brother-in-law, Benjamin Oyem, were sleeping and locked the door.
Nkem, a Nigerian, survived and is being treated for severe injuries at the hospital, but Oyem died.
The public relations officer of the Tema Regional Police Command, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Ms Juliana Obeng, told the Daily Graphic that the incident occurred in a house at Ashaiman Lebanon Zone Two on Thursday, November 17, 2016.
The suspect, who before carrying out the act took her three children from the room in which they were sleeping with their father and their uncle, has been arrested.
