Another sad story from Kasoa reaching our front desk indicates that a 14-year-old boy has set his 10-year-old colleague on fire with petrol.
According to reports, the 10-year-old boy; identified as Kofi was returning from an errand when the 14-year-old boy met him. He then poured a little jar of petroleum on him and lit a fire.
The mother of the victim said that her son had gone out to buy a shoe. However, upon returning, she noticed his son had blazes all over his body.
God being so good, people around quickly put out the fire before further harm; but he was left with severe burns on his body.
According to residents, they suspect the 14-year-old boy; identified as Hammer was going to burn a ‘mallam’ who accused him of smoking weed.
Though the father of Hammer claims he’s 14 years old; hence he shouldn’t be arrested. Residents however believe he is 18 years so he should be arrested.
The incident was also confirmed on Peace FM’s 6:00pm news today, 9th April, 2021.
