Kasoa is gradually becoming a den of many bad happenings in the country; from armed attacks to young men indulging in money rituals. It is gradually attracting the tag as Ghana's most dangerous den.
The latest news is that a ten (10) year old young boy has been set ablaze by another boy whose age is now in contention.
According to UTV reporter in the area, a boy called Azumah aka Hammer was playing with petrol and fire on the street when the young boy came by. The said Hammer called the boy and asked him to help him by lighting a flame after he (hammer) has finished shaking the petrol.
“A boy by name Hammer was playing with petrol on the street; he was shaking the fuel in a bottle and lighting it afterwards. So when this boy got to the scene, Hammer called him to help him out by lighting up a match after he (Hammer) has finished shaking the fuel. When he was shaking the fuel, some spilled on his hands, so when the little boy lighted the match, it burnt his hands.
“In the process, Azumah (Hammer), out of desperation, poured the petrol on the boy which then attracted the fire, leading to the extreme burns that the young boy has suffered," he told Afia Pokua on UTV midday news.
According to him, the contention over the real age of Azumah started when he and his father gave different ages to the Police when he was arrested, adding that he has been released.
“When he was arrested, Azumah told the Police that he is 18, but when his father came, he denied that his son is 18, rather 14 years. He has been released and walking about without any remorse. The police said they will take the issue to court, but as we speak whether the case will be taken to court today or tomorrow, nobody can tell," he stated.
