On 24 November 2017, Ayinbisa and two of his friends were sent by another to go and buy petrol from a filling station.

According to Ayinbisa, on their way from the errand, a man accused him and his friends of peeping at a woman in a bathroom. He said his friends escaped leaving him behind. He was grabbed by his accuser, Nsobila John, who took the petrol in a gallon from him, poured it on him and struck a match setting him ablaze.

When Class News visited the family of the victim at Pobaga, a suburb of Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region, his head, chest and both hands were bandaged as offensive odour emanates from the wounds with whitish substance dripping from the wounds on his head.
