85-year-old stroke patient, Mr. Tettey Emmanuel’s is being treated at the Assin Praso Presbyterian Hospital of severe burns after his son poured hot water on him.
The sad event occurred one evening at Assin Fosu when the victim demanded of his son the total amount of the sale of the family’s cocoa beans.
Mr. Amenor, 45, after selling the family’s cocoa beans at GH¢ 200.00 gave just GH¢ 10.00 to his mother, Madam Comfort Tettey for her upkeep and that of his sick father and then spent the rest on booze that evening.
Upon confrontation by his father when he arrived, Mr. Amenor got furious and rained insults on him. This aroused the anger of the 85-year-old who threatened to curse his son if he did not refund the remaining amount from the sale of the cocoa beans.
Mr. Tettey Emmanuel’s threat nurtured in his son the evil plot of injuring him; which he carried out while the stroke patient was asleep.
Mr. Amenor has been sentenced to two (2) years in prison by the Assin Magistrate court.
