An orphan whose name was given as Favour Omokaro, was reportedly set ablaze by his friend’s mom in Edo state.
The orphan who was set ablaze by his friend’s mom, has since been taken to the hospital for adequate treatment after he was brought to the office of human rights activist, Kola Edokpayi, by a concerned resident of the area.
The lady behind the sad incident, has been summoned by the police to explain why she committed the said offence. Kola Edokpayi wrote;
Today at our office a young boy ( Favour Omokaro) was brought by a caring citizen with fire burn on his face, chest and belle. After hearing from the boy on how he got all the skin burns on his body.
The boy told us that it was his friend’s mother that inflicted the pain on him. After listening to him, we swung into action, firstly to hear from the police station where the matter was first reported. And we made sure the police summoned the accused woman.
They quickly took the boy for medical treatment on our swift intervention.
This little boy is not well cared for before now. But we are prone to make sure that the boy gets a better home.
Lets care for the uncared for.
More update soon.
