A 20-year-old school dropout Priscilla Berfi has set her boyfriend’s house at Deduako in the Oforikrom Constituency of the Ashanti Region ablaze for cheating on her.
No casualties were recorded but the fire destroyed several properties.
Speaking to the media, the boyfriend, Kofi Adusei said he has ceased taking care of Priscilla, who is pregnant due to what he describes as her bad attitude and lack of respect towards him.
He said Priscilla visited him in the night but they had a misunderstanding so he decided not to spend the night with her in the same room.
Adusei left his room and went to sleep in another room where a second girlfriend was waiting for him.
“While relaxing in my room, I later smelled a scent like that of burning clothes and so I thought she had taken some of my clothings out to burn them. I really wasn’t bothered, but later I heard shouts and calls that my room is on fire, we rushed to see the room in flames with Priscilla nowhere to be found,” he said.
Kofi Adusei subsequently reported the incident to the police.
The suspect, Priscilla Berfi was arrested by Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) District Police Command to help with further investigations.
