A man suspected to be mentally challenged has set the apartment of his mother and other adjoining ones ablaze in Takoradi in the Western Region.

Reports say the man, who has only been identified as Mawul and in his early 30s, had jokingly indicated that he will burn down his mother’s home. But residents had ignored him thinking he did not mean his words.

But Mawul, to the surprise of many, stood by his words and set fire to his mother’s home, with the fire spreading to other houses.

Mawul has since been arrested and detained at the Takoradi Central police station.
