A mother has destroyed her own son’s body after she poured hot water on him and then locked him up in the room for days for being stubborn.
The woman whose name is Cynthia residing at Kisseiman, a suburb of Accra, destroyed her son’s body after she deliberately boiled water and poured it on the boy.
According to an eyewitness account to FNN24, the woman after pouring the hot water on the 19-year-old boy went ahead to lock him up and his other siblings in the room for days.
The eyewitness added that for the past seven or more days, anytime the woman wants to go to town, she locks her children in the room to prevent them from talking to people in the house.
However, on Friday, September 10, 2021, when she again locked up the boy and his other siblings in the room and stepped out, the children started to bang the door loudly.
The eye witness then told FNN24 it was when she decided to check what was happening to the children in the room that she heard someone groaning in pain. She quickly looked through the window but could not believe her eyes.
She then blew an alarm, and other people rushed into the house to see what a mother has done to her son.
The boy initially lied that he fell into the water but after persuasion from the concerned people, he admitted that his mother intentionally poured the hot water on him.
The case was reported to the Police and the mother was arrested the following day when she tried to escape with her other children.
She is currently at the Tenaso Police station and the victim has also been admitted and receiving treatment at the Ridge General Hospital, Accra.
