Bolgatanga-based Dreamz FM is reporting that a Policeman has allegedly set the house of his girlfriend ablaze after she took money for transportation but failed to visit him as promised.
According to the report, the Police Officer whose name was given as Sergeant Senaya Saviour is said to have burnt the compound house where his lover and her auntie live as tenants on November 23, 2021.
Sergeant Senaya Saviour is said to have gone to the house of the girlfriend whose name was given as Eunice on November 21 but knocked severally without a response.
Infuriated, Sergeant Senaya Saviour is said to have broken the window of the house and left without seeing his girlfriend.
He is said to have returned the following day and under the pretext of fixing the broken window took away all the belongings of Eunice from her room.
He subsequently visited the pub which was operated by the auntie of his girlfriend Eunice hoping to meet his lover there but Sergeant Senaya Saviour did not see Eunice there. He was said to be holding a gallon suspected to be containing petrol.
On November 23, Sergeant Senaya Saviour visited the house around 1pm when he thought Eunice was in the building and torched the house. The fire is said to have started from Eunice’s Auntie’s room before burning other five rooms occupied by tenants and the landlord.
It took the intervention of the fire service to stop the spread of the fire to douse the flames and prevent further spread. He is said to have repeated same on the pub of Eunice’s Auntie five days after setting their house ablaze.
The case has since been reported to the Police by auntie of Eunice whose room and personal belongings have been razed down by fire.
“We were at the shop when somebody called that the house was on fire. We invited the fire service and they came around and did their investigation and said somebody poured fuel, that they suspect arson. And the fire started from my room. The house isn’t mine, I’m only a tenant. Many rooms were completely destroyed. I went to the police station and lodged a complaint. Since that day up to now, the police is not telling me anything. All they keep telling me is go and come,” she said.
She said she advised her niece to leave the relationship with the Policeman because she was not comfortable with it and thought it won’t lead to anything. Eunice according to her auntie heeded her advise and broke up with the Policeman who could not accept he had been jilted.
“I advised her to stop her relationship with the guy. The guy happens to be a police officer. So she told the guy that she was no more interested in the relationship. Now, the guy didn’t understand why my niece said she doesn’t want him again. Before even the fire last night, the guy had called my niece, telling her that ‘since you said you don’t want me again and that you cannot stay with me then you can’t be with any other person.”
Meanwhile, the landlord is said to have also reported the issue to the Police of a suspected arson
