After attempting to hijack a bus, a man said to be in his mid-30s was lynched at Asafo in Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti region, on Wednesday morning.
The deceased attempted to flee in a Grand Bird bus with the V.I.P. Transport Company’s registration number GE-2384, but the driver’s mate and some bystanders chased and caught the suspect.
A short time after the mob attack, the suspect was killed after being beaten with objects.
“When the driver and his mate were pursuing the suspect while driving the stolen bus, upon sensing danger, the suspect jumped from the bus. In the process the bus was moving without a driver and started hitting people in the vehicle Parking space. But luck eluded the deceased suspect and he was arrested with the support of some community members and was beaten to death. That’s all I can say about the incident,” an eyewitness told GHOne News.
The suspect’s dead corpse was sent to the mortuary by the Asokwa district police command in the meantime for preservation.
An investigation into the incident has started.
