By Maame Aba Afful

A man suspected to be mentally challenged has set ablaze two apartments were in Takoradi, Western region.

Mawul, who is in his early thirties, had earlier announced his intention to set his mother’s apartment ablaze Tuesday, but neighbours treated it lightly and did not take any proactive measures.

True to his words, Mawul reportedly set the fire in his mother’s apartment, which is an old bungalow previously occupied by staff of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority. The fire spread to the adjourning apartment.

The suspect tried to escape from the scene but some residents pursued and accosted him.
