A 20-year-old man has been deformed and left bedridden after he was bathed with acid for no apparent reason.
Richard Agbati, a 20-year-old man has been deformed and left bedridden after he was bathed with acid for no apparent reason.
Richard who hails from Kwahu Kotoso in the Eastern Region, had acid poured on him by one Charles who had allegedly contracted some persons to perform the heinous deed.
According to Lartey Agbati, brother of the victim, he got a tip off about the intended acid attack from one Micheal in the area and warned his brother Richard who ignored his warning because he believed he had done nothing wrong to Charles.
Lartey Agbati said a few days after the warning, he was informed his brother has been sprayed with acid and had lost sight in one eye and was gradually losing his sense of hearing.
He added that, his brother’s entire face, hands and legs have been deformed and he could lose his life because the family can’t afford the high medical bills.
Veronica Agbati, mother of the 20-year-old Richard, is appealing to the public and philanthropists to come to her aid to save her son’s life.
She said Richard Agbati, was on admission at the Abetifi government hospital was later transferred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching hospital (KATH) in the Ashanti region but is now home since she has no money to transport him to the KATH for the needed surgery to save his life.
Meanwhile, DSP Owiredu, Police Commander of the Mpraeso police who confirmed the story to Adom News said they have arrested one person to help in investigations into the acid attack.
The suspect will be arraigned before court after investigations are concluded.
