Man pours fuel on 11 year old boy, sets him on fire for peeping at woman in bathroom

Can we call this an act of discipline or what?
The boy was wrong quite alright, but is setting him on fire the best punishment he deserves?

That one is not even my anger, but the way police handled the case.

What on earth is happening in Ghana? Are there no human rights activist in that country?
This is an attempted murder and he deserves to be locked behind bars and not settle out of court

Read the report below:

An 11-year-old boy in Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region of Ghana, Maxwell Ayinbisa is still nursing his wounds over one year after a man poured petrol on him and set him ablaze for allegedly peeping at a woman in a bathroom.

On 24 November 2017, Ayinbisa and two of his friends were sent by another to go and buy petrol from a filling station.

According to Ayinbisa, on their way from the errand, a man accused him and his friends of peeping at a woman in a bathroom. He said his friends escaped leaving him behind. He was grabbed by his accuser, Nsobila John, who took the petrol in a gallon from him, poured it on him and struck a match setting him ablaze.

When Class News visited the family of the victim at Pobaga, a suburb of Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region, his head, chest and both hands were bandaged as offensive odour emanates from the wounds with whitish substance dripping from the wounds on his head.

The father of the victim, Mustahpa Rahamani told Class News the suspect; Nsobila John after taking care of the initial cost of treatment of his son has abandoned him.

The Bolgatanga Municipal Police Commander, DSP Samuel Punobyin told Class News the families of the victim and suspect had reached an agreement to settle the matter out of court.

He noted that the suspect agreed to foot all medical expenses before he was granted bail.

DSP Punobyin noted that the police are willing to process the suspect for court since he has reneged on his responsibility.
