A father, Mr Yaya went berserk for the wrong reason and set the ‘bumbum’ of his 10-year-old son, Lukman Babarinde, on fire.
Offense committed was stealing money from a neighbour.
He was believed to have beaten the victim to pulp and thereafter broke his arms before telling him to sit on a local stove, stocked with burning coals.
The action was said to have burnt the victim’s clothes and different parts of his body.
Yaya proceeded to binding Lukman with ropes and forced him to kneel.
It was the boy’s sister, Bidemi that later cut off the ropes.
The boy is receiving treatment at an hospital in Ibadan, Oyo State.
