Man lynched for entering girls dormitory

An 18-year old unemployed man was at the weekend lynched after he was caught in one of the girls’ dormitories at the Amaniampong Senior High School (SHS), Asante-Mampong.

A mob attacked and beat up the deceased, Kwasi Yeboah, in the early hours of Saturday.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Iddrisu Abdulai, the Asante-Mampong Municipal Police Commander, confirmed the incident to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) and said though they had made no arrest, they were investigating the unpleasant incident.

DSP Abdulai said they received a late call that somebody was being lynched at the Adiembra Low Cost Housing, a suburb of Mampong, and quickly rushed there where they found the victim lying prostrate on the ground in a weak condition and carried him to the Mampong Municipal Hospital and he was pronounced dead on arrival.

He said the body of the deceased had been deposited at Effiduase mortuary for autopsy.

Mr Fredrick Addai, the Headmaster, when reached on telephone said he was not in the school when the incident happened and could therefore not comment.
