An angry mob have descended on three armed robbers and lynched them to death after they were caught stealing from a man’s house.
Luck has ran out on three armed robbers after they were lynched by an angry mob recently at Nator Banori, a village near Nadowli in the Upper West Region of Ghana. DailyGuide reported that the victims, who are of Fulani extraction, are currently at the Upper West Regional Hospital in Wa.
Briefing the media in Wa, Deputy Upper West Regional Police Commander, ACP Edward Oduro Kwarteng, said at about 1300 hrs on that fateful day, one Dienuma Kwaku, 45, heard an unusual noise in his room.
He said the complainant then woke up and saw three supposed Fulani men – one of them he could only identify as Puuri and two others, who formerly resided in the same village – armed with two single barrel shot guns and cutlasses.
He said they were busily ransacking the complainant’s personal effects in the room. ACP Kwarteng said the complainant, upon seeing the suspects, raised an alarm and they escaped from the room. Later he (complainant) claimed he had identified two of the suspects and led four other young men to the houses of the three Fulani men where they were arrested and brought to his house.
Mr Dienuma Kwaku later invited his neighbours to his house and as they were cautioning the suspects, they were also being beaten at the same time, the deputy commander said.
He said when they saw that the suspects were weak, they conveyed them on a tricycle to the Nadowli Police Station where the police quickly rushed them to the hospital, but they were pronounced dead on arrival.
The complainant has since been arrested.
