Horror: Suspected Thief Burnt To Death

An unidentified young man suspected to be a thief was set alight in the early hours of Saturday January 9, 2015 and dumped in a drain at Agric Kromoase, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

Some residents who spoke to Class News’ Ashanti regional correspondent, Frank Jackson, said they had been recording theft cases in the community in the last few months.

According to Frank Jackson, scores of residents had gathered on the morning to catch a glimpse of the man.

The suspected thief was lying in a gutter dead and burnt beyond recognition.

Beside his body was a locally manufactured gun.

It was not clear what was used to burn him as there were no car tyres – normally used by mobs to burn suspects – at the scene.

A few metres away from the body were pieces of concrete blocks and torn,blood-soaked clothes .

The police were not at the scene at the time of filing this report.
