Angry youth strip suspected thief naked

A suspected thief, George Kwaku Eni, in Nyinahin in Atwiman-Mponua district in the Ashanti region was nearly lynched for being part of a group of burglars terrorizing residents of the area.

According to an eyewitness, Kofi Owusu, the alleged thief is unemployed who is part of a gang terrorizing residents in the area.

“He is my friend. He took GHC700.00 by cutting through my net. For investigation purposes, I approached him together with some of my friends. He refused the claim. And we urged him to follow us to the police station. And he didn’t want to, so we had to forcefully take him there. When we arrested them to the police, the commander gave them free bail” he said.


Kofi Owusu bemoaned how the police in the area fail to act when they report such criminal cases to them.

He therefore called on the police to be proactive to prevent such criminal acts from recur.
