A 10-year-old boy has been set ablaze with petrol by a 14-year-old boy at Kasoa in the Central Region of Ghana.

Mother of the 10-year young boy, Cynthia Amankwah narrating the incident to Afia Pokuaa said her son went out to buy a shoe. She later saw his son returning home with flames of fire all over his body.

She said her son was passing by when the 14 year old boy identified as ‘Hammer’ poured a little can of petrol on him and lighted fire on his body.

Fortunately for the 10 year boy, there were children around who intervened to put the fire off.

However, in the photos below, the skin of Cynthia’s 10 year old son has been wiped off leaving the flesh.
