Two persons have been arrested at Akuapem-Adawso for stripping two teenagers naked and parading them in the streets over an alleged GHC100 and mobile phone theft.
According to a Police statement, the teenagers have been transferred to Accra for medical attention at the Police hospital.
The victims, both 14 years of age, were alleged to have stolen Ghc100 cash and a mobile phone.
The mob led by one Larbi and Akwei brutalized the two children making one of them defecate on himself in the process.
The minors were then stripped naked and paraded from the Tinkong stretch of the Koforidua -Mamfe highway to the Adawso township where traders were having brisk business on the market day.
A video intercepted by Starr News Eastern Regional Correspondent Kojo Ansah who visited the community to investigate the incident shows the hands of the two minors tied while being paraded and assaulted with their naked bodies.
The mother of one of the victims, Augustina Danso, could not hide her tears recounting the inhumane treatment meted to her son.
She said even though the case has been reported to the Adawso police it has been transferred to the Akropong District Police Command but the suspects are still walking freely. She said those who assaulted her son are rather bragging that “poor person cannot win a case against rich man”.
