A man has reportedly beaten his 11-year-old son like a goat over his school bag in the Jaman North Municipality of the Bono Region.
This is after the boy reportedly left his bag outside their house leading to his books being destroyed from a heavy downpour in the area.
On reporting to school on the third day of the event, the headmaster of the school noticed bloodstains on the boy’s uniform.
The victim, a class four pupil of the school, is said to have sustained deep wounds at his back though it is not clear what the father used in beating him.
Upon the headmaster’s confrontation with the suspect, the latter allegedly threatened to deal with him should the case become a legal matter.
He was, however, arrested but granted bail pending investigation with the boy at his grandmother’s place after medical care at the Buka hospital.
