Four suspected thieves have been brutalized by residents of Pampaso and Kensere in the Bekwai Municipality of the Ashanti Region.
The suspects were beaten to a pulp by angry mobs for allegedly stealing rail line metals in the community.
An eye witness narrated that the four suspects according to residents were found cutting the rail line metals being constructed by government and loading them onto their heavy duty truck at 2am on Tuesday.
The angry youth rushed to the rail line construction site upon a tip-off to arrest the nation wreckers. The eye witness said the thieves were not spared as the agitated youths in both communities stone and beat them to pulp before police intervention.
According to the Assembly Member of Kensere, Hon. Emmanuel Anim Okyere, “the guys always go to the site fully armed to resist attacks from aliens and anyone who tries to stop them get killed”.
“But this morning, thank to the Almighty, unluckily for them, we chanced on them at their blind side and over powered them”, the Honourable Member said
The four suspects have been sent to the Bekwai police for further investigation.
