Shocking! Man Sets His 15-Year-Old Son On Fire In Niger State

A 15-year-old boy, Bello, was doused with petrol and set ablaze by his 43-year-old father, Mallam Musa Mohammed in Niger State.

Mohammed was arrested by the Rights Protection Agency in the State for setting ablaze his teenage son.

The Director-General of the agency, Mrs. Mairam Kolo, who disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Minna, said the incident occurred around Polytechnic Road, Bida, in Bida Local Government Area of the state.

Kolo explained that Musa tied the victim up and siphoned petrol from his motorcycle, poured it on the victim and set him on fire because of his alleged frequent quarrels with his (victim’s) elder brother.

According to her, the quick intervention of neighbours helped save the boy from being burnt to death.

“During questioning, the father confessed that his action was as a result of the behaviour of the boy, saying he was always quarreling with his elder brother, while he was also rude to him (the father).

“He said he was tired of the boy’s bad behaviour and had warned him several times to stop fighting his elder brother, but he refused to take to warning,” Kolo said.

She added that the accused would be charged to court under Section 25 of the Child Rights Law and sections 299 and 348 of the Panel Code Law.

She said the victim was receiving treatment at the Umaru Ndayako General Hospital, Bida.

The father who earlier admitted to have poured petrol on his son and set him ablaze, pleaded with the agency for leniency, saying he committed the offence out of anger.

  1. This is absurd,how can a man set his own son on fire simply because he fights with his elder brother…..he really needs to be taken to a rehab center

  2. People are really meanooo…siblings do fight and it’s normal. That kind of punishment is uncalled for. The man needs to be taken to a mental asylum.
    He is mentally unbalanced.

  3. I can’t believe these.. I think the man is possessed by an evil spirit and should seek the face of the Lord.. you don’t just set your child ablaze because he fights with his sibling or because he disrespects you.. He should be taken to a mental hospital if possible because it’s obvious he has lost it..

  4. This is strange and indeed wicked, the heart of men is really indeed wicked.. no matter what no one deserves this kind of inhuman treatment.
