“When I asked them if they have collected back the money from him, they told me that he only returned half of it and had given the rest to his friends on the street.
“I beat him up, tied his hands and put him in the fireplace not knowing there was fire in it. Unfortunately, the fire caught his cloth and burnt his body.
“I don’t have money to take him to the hospital.
“It was a mistake. I did not do it intentionally. Please pardon me.”
Babarinde has been taken into police custody to face punishment for child abuse.
