Mother Of Jahhym Says She Was Also Attacked By One Of Her Son’s Assailant


Odiel Furlong, mother of seventeen-year-old Jahhym Azoo, alleged that she was attacked by one of the perpetrators who had initially gone to her children’s school.

Furlong said despite multiple reports, the police have yet to arrest all of the alleged perpetrators.

“The police not doing their work. Every time I go to the station, they tell me they can’t find the pickaneerga and them and I am wondering why they can’t find them. I would really like to know what’s going on because this nah sound right. It frustrates me now; sometimes I chip out. This na right to me.” she said.

The police, to date, have arrested and charged two minors with assault with intent to commit murder and have said that there was no indication that there were indeed five boys who attacked and injured Azoo.

However, Jahhym and his mother insist that it was five boys.

Seventeen-year-old Azoo was severely beaten earlier this month in the vicinity of the Greenbay Primary School. The Dominican native was given a 50 percent chance of survival and medical practitioners were flown in from Trinidad to perform surgeries to repair the damage to his face and to stop the bleeding on his brain.

The teenager, however, beat the odds and is now at home recovering.

Furlong appeals to the public for assistance in getting liquid food and medication for her son.

Anyone wishing to assist the teenager could do so by contacting his mother at 724-8851.
