The family members of Mr John Nsobila, the 29-year-old mason in Bolgatanga who doused an eleven-year-old boy with petrol and set him on fire for allegedly peeping at a woman in a bathroom, have denied neglecting the little boy to his fate.

According to Mr Prosper Nsobila, a brother of the suspect, he has personally spent over GHS2,000 on the little boy’s medical bills, adding that he has taken the victim as his son and ensures that his medical needs are taken care of.

The Bolgatanga municipal police command arrested the suspect a day after Class News broke the story.

The suspect will be arraigned on Friday, 8 February 2019.

He was arrested after the man who stood surety for him turned him in to the Bolga municipal police command following an extensive report on how he had abandoned the victim on Class91.3FM on Wednesday, 6 February 2019.

Background

Young Maxwell Ayinbisa is still nursing his wounds of over one-year-old, which he sustained after the suspect doused him with petrol and set him ablaze for allegedly peeping at a woman in a bathroom.

On 24 November 2017, Ayinbisa and two of his friends were sent to buy petrol from a fuel station.

According to Ayinbisa, on their way from the errand, a man accused him and his friends of peeping at a woman in a bathroom.

The little boy said his friends fled and left him behind. He was grabbed by his accuser, Nsobila John, who wrenched the gallon of petrol from him, doused him with the fuel and struck a match at him.

When Class News’ William Jalulah visited the family of the victim at Pobaga, a suburb of Bolgatanga in the region, he met a suffering boy whose sore-riddled head, torso and hands were in band-aids.

The foul odour from his puss-filled sores was unbearable.

The father of the victim, Mustahpa Rahamani told Class News that the suspect, after taking care of the initial medical bills of the boy, abandoned him.

The Bolgatanga Municipal Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Samuel Punobyin told Jalulah that the families of the victim and the suspect had reached an agreement to settle the matter out of court.

He noted that the suspect agreed to foot all medical expenses before he was granted bail.

DSP Punobyin noted that the police are willing to process the suspect for court since he has reneged on his promise.
