A 24-year-old woman living in Banjul, the capital city of the West African country of the Gambia is currently undergoing treatment after she suffered injury from hot water burn, National Telegraph has confirmed.
Adam Mbenga, has reported to the police, Sunday November 17, 2019. According to the report, Adam said the perpetrator is his half brother.
Adam told the police that he poured hot water on her causing several injuries. Adama narrated that she was lying on her bed when her brother Omar Njie poured hot water on her, causing burns to her face, chest, and shoulders.
He fled shortly after the incident on Sunday but was later arrested and detained at the Banjul Police Station. “I want him to rot in prison. He is not my brother.” Adam stated angrily.
“He is right now on bail. I will never forgive him. Omar is wicked, heartless, brutal and evil.” She continued. Court proceedings are yet to be disclosed between the two siblings who share the same mother but different fathers.
