Sad story of how a young boy was set ablaze in Enugu for misplacing a phone in his care

A young boy was yesterday burnt to death in Enugu for allegedly leaving a barber shop where a phone had gone missing. A certain Wisdom Kelechi had  poured petrol on his friend, Junior Onah and set fire on him.

Onah’s sin according to Guardian was that he left a shop where a mobile phone had been placed in his care to charge.

On returning to the shop, Kelechi could not find the phone. Livid at the loss of the phone, he went out and returned with a gallon of fuel, which he poured on his friend and set him on fire.

 Onah was  rescued by people, but sustained severe burn injuries and is still battling for his life at the hospital. 

The police in Enugu, according to Guardian has since arrested Kelechi. Ebere Amaraizu, police PPRO in the state speaking on the incident said:

“The suspect has been promptly arrested by police operatives and he is helping in the investigation just as the victim was rescued with severe burns and taken to the hospital, where he is receiving treatment,” Amaraizu explained.
