A man identified as wisdom Kelechi has landed in the police net after pouring petrol and setting alight his apprentice, Junior Onah.
The incident happened at Abakpa in Enugu state on the 24th of September, 2017.
Kelechi had set Junior ablaze because the apprentice had left a barbering saloon where Kelechi had plugged his phone to be charged. Kelechi blamed the young man for the loss of his phone because he left it unattended. He then proceeded to, allegedly, pour petrol on his “boy” and set fire to him.
The Enugu State police operatives have arrested Kelechi while Junior, who received severe burns to parts of his body was taken to an undisclosed hospital for treatment.
