Woman’s home fire-bombed

Sunday, January 8 2017

A woman and her 60-year-old mother have lost everything after their home in Eastern Quarry, Laventille was fire-bombed.

Residents say the fire-bombing was part of the ongoing turf war in the area.

Marissa Tobas told reporters she was on her way to a christening when she got a call that her home was on fire.

When she returned home she saw her mother trying to flee the burning structure.

Tobas said her mother sustained first degree burns on her back, fingers and feet and was taken to the Port-of- Spain General Hospital for treatment.

“I am thanking God to move out of here because I have been begging HDC for a home for the longest while to get out of this. In here not nice. When you coming in the night, it’s like a scary movie,” she said.

Tobas said the war has been on going for four years.

“I believe this war ‘aint done, this war now start. I not in the war. I does barely speak to people. Good morning, good evening and good bye because I don’t want them to say I siding with the wrong clip.

“My children don’t even want to come up here,” she said.

Police are continuing their investigations.
