A father of two has reportedly set his home ablaze in the Ashanti Region, leaving his nine-year-old boy dead and his other child and wife severely injured.
Identified as Agyemang, the married man who happens to be a commercial driver after setting the house on fire attempted to take his life but his plan proved futile as he survived the incident. He is currently under medical watch at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) having sustained several degrees of injuries in the fire alongside his wife and second child.
The incident has left neighbours in a state of shock as the fire swept through the four-bedroom apartment destroying properties worth thousands of Ghana Cedis.
Firefighting officials have since recovered the charred body from the debris. Investigations are however underway to ascertain the reason behind the man setting fire into his home.
