Four buildings in Numereso in the Amanse Central Municipality in the Ashanti region have been burnt down and one life has been lost as a result of this. Yaw Sakyi a 38 years old man is believed to have set himself on fire which led to the burning down of these buildings. According to the assemblyman of the area, Yaw Sakyi has been suffering from Hernia for many years now and has become a laughing stock in the area. He said his Hernia was very huge and this made him very uncomfortable in the community.
Because of this situation, his wife and children were living in a different town. According to a young boy who lived with him, the man sent him three times to go buy some items for him. And upon returning the third time, he saw the man in flames in the room. Due to the intensity of the fire, they could not save Yaw Sakyi from losing his life. The young boy confirmed that there was petrol in the room.
What amazed the residents of the area was that, although the man got burnt, his house did not burn but the fire extended to other buildings which were made of bamboo and those got burnt. A man lamented how his money worth 7,000 Ghana Cedis got burnt as a result of it. The Odikro of Numereso Nana Kwaku Adu lamented how the Police delayed arriving at the scene.
This is because there is no Police station in the town and the road leading from the next town to Numereso is in a very poor state. Nana mentioned that the town folks have gathered resources and have started the construction of a Police Station in the town. They however call on the Government to support them to gain a Police station in the town.
