Suspected Robber Burnt To Death In Front Of Police Station
Some furious teenagers set a young man on fire in front of a police station who was thought to be one of the perpetrators of robberies in Juaboso and its surroundings in the Western Region.
Three individuals were detained, but one fled, a second was saved by the police, and the third was lynched without help from them.
“The angry youth descended heavily on the police and threw stones at them and damaged their vehicles when the law enforcers attempted to rescue the suspects,” Graphic.com reports.
An eyewitness claimed that the lynched robber was discovered after he was spotted attempting to board a vehicle at the main Bonsu Nkwanta Lorry Station bound for Kumasi in the Ashanti Region while carrying six phones.
Some of the teenagers then challenged him to unlock the phones, but he was unable to do so.
After taking the SIM card out and inserting it into another device, the teenager realized the phone belonged to a well-known person in the neighborhood when they tried to conduct a mobile money transaction.
