A man, only identified as Awuni, has been lynched by residents of Maakro, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region for stealing GH¢800.00.
The suspected robber carried his operation on a businesswoman named Dorothy and her daughter at knife point, a report by Daily Guide said.
According to an eyewitness, the deceased threatened to slash the throat of the woman’s daughter if Dorothy refuses to give him all the money she had.
The victim emptied her bag and gave out her GH¢800 including her mobile phone to safeguard her life and that of her daughter.
“After Awuni took the money, Dorothy’s daughter started shouting for help. The residents started chasing him and arrested him at the Pipe Junction. They caned him and later lynched him,” the witness narrated.
The suspected robber’s remains have been deposited at the morgue awaiting autopsy.
The police, on the other hand, are yet to launch an investigation into the matter.
