Father Sets His Son On Fire Over Alleged Theft

Sola Akangbe, a 21 year old wheelbarrow pusher reportedly died over the weekend following wounds from a fire allegedly set on him by his biological father named Kehinde in Omu-Aran, Kwara state.

The deceased was accused of stealing an undisclosed amount of money from some
roadside beggars on Friday and was apprehended and handed over to his father.

According to Daily post:


The father, a commercial driver, allegedly drove his son to a nearby bush on Omu-Aran-Isanlu-Isin Road, tied his hands and legs before setting him ablaze.

Sola, who was still alive when he was rescued, reportedly told his rescuers that his father was responsible for the act.

The deceased was said to have suffered high degree burns and was confirmed dead by doctors at Ajisafe Hospital, Omu-Aran.

It was gathered that doctors at the hospital battled to save his life as the fire affected most parts of his body.

The mother of the deceased, Rachael, was seen crying in the hospital after the death of her son was broken to her. She, however, acknowledged that Sola was an unrepentant troublesome fellow.

Expressing shock at her husband’s action, Sola’s mother, who is a trader based in Odo-Owa, another suburb, said a friend had notified her of the development on phone before she rushed to the hospital to check on her son.

She disclosed that although she gave birth few weeks ago, she had divorced Kehinde about seven years ago as a result of irreconcilable differences.

The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, in the state, Ajayi Okasanmi, while confirming the incident, said investigation was ongoing, adding that the suspect was already in police custody.
