ASSIN SOUTH: Woman bathed with hot soup over GHC20.00 debt at Assin Asamankese
A 48-year-old woman has been bathed with hot soup over 20 Cedis debt at Assin Asamankese in the Assin South District of the Central Region.
According to the victim, Adwoa Ketsewa, she borrowed 20 Cedis fish on credit from a fish seller to prepare food for her family.
Three days later, the fish seller, Ekua Dermaa who lives at Assin Achiase went to the victim’s house angrily to demand her 20 Cedis.
According to the victim, she didn’t have money on her when the woman came demanding it, so she asked her to go and that she’ll pay the next day.
The fish seller who was not happy with the negotiation decided to take away the victim’s silver pan which resulted in a scuffle between them.
The victim disclosed that she, in the process, slipped and fell and the fish seller used her leg to kick the palm nut soup she was preparing on fire onto her body.
The victim screamed for help, and people in the next house came to her aid and rushed her to the hospital for treatment.
On the other hand, eyewitnesses who spoke with the media claim the victim rather fell on the coal pot and the soup splashed on her body in the process.
The case has however been reported at the Assin Manso Police Station while a medical form has been issued pending investigation. The police have assured to speed up the investigation to get to the bottom of the case to ensure justice is served.
Meanwhile, the Victim is appealing to the general public for support to enable her to cater for her consumables and medicines administered to her by the hospital.
