The Father of a ten-year-old boy in Cameroon burnt his son’s hands on suspicion of him stealing 1000 francs from the Father. The money in question was missing, which prompted the Father to suspect his son of stealing. The ten-year-old son argued for his innocence after the Father accused him without concrete proof of his guilt.
The Boy got due to the actions of the Father. Accordingly, the doctors treating him have asserted that the Boy may need to have his limb amputated due to the infections after the burning.
The reports suggest that the Father locked his ten-year-old son in a room where he had lit the fire. The Boy suffered serious injuries on his hands. Several social media users in Cameroon and other countries across the globe are criticising the Father for his heartless actions towards his ten-year-old son. They have called out the Father on his cruelty and punished the ten-year-old without concrete proof of the act.
Meanwhile, the reports have also revealed that the Father found the misplaced sum of money in a different room of the house. Notably, the Boy still suffers the repercussions of the Father’s actions. He may need amputation to save his life. The police authorities of Cameroon arrested the culprit of the ten-year-old. He is currently in a cell with law enforcement agencies.
Additionally, several human rights associations and agencies condemn the Father’s actions. They describe this act of the Father as barbaric. Meanwhile, A benefactor from the United States, where medicine is very advanced, proposes a medical evacuation of the child. The child’s limb can improve without needing amputation in a country with advanced healthcare.
Notably, the parents of the ten-year-old victim are separated, and the mother leaves them to rebuild her life. The Boy is left alone in the absence of his fater, who got arrested after the incident.
