Two people were lynched yesterday, with another badly beaten near a spot at the Cape Coast Polytechnic after allegedly stealing three sheep at Ekroful in the Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese District of the Central Region.

The bodies of Godwin, also known as Dauda, 24, and one Kwaku, 21, had been deposited at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital morgue, while Richard Mensah, 21, the third suspect is on admission at the same facility.

Briefing the Ghana News Agency, Chief Superintendent Samuel Winful, the Cape Coast Metro Police Commander, said the Police had a distress call about 3pm on Wednesday from a radio station located within the Cape Coast Polytechnic that two people were being beaten by a mob near the institution.

He said when the Police got to the area, they found two people lying near a drinking spot close to the Polytechnic with multiple injuries.

Chief Superintendent Winful said the suspects were rushed to the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital, but Dauda was pronounced dead on arrival but Kwaku who had multiple wounds gave up the died later.

Preliminary enquiries, according to him revealed that the suspects who were in a RIO Aveo taxi cab, with registration number GW 7327 Z, went to Ekroful near Asebu and stole three sheep.

However, luck ran out on them when some inhabitants of the town spotted and trailed them in another taxi cab to the location near the Cape Coast Polytechnic and raised the alarm which attracted a mob to the scene.

Kwaku managed to escape but the mob attacked and killed Dauda and leaving Richard with various degrees of injuries.

Kwaku was said to have come back later on to the same area thinking the mob had left, but was also seized and beaten to death.

Chief Superintendent Winful said the taxi cab in which the suspects were, was vandalized and had some of its parts stolen by the mob.

Richard was responding to treatment under Police guard and would be arraigned before court on Monday, March 2,

He advised the public not to mete instant justice on suspects since it distorted Police investigations, but should rather hand them to the Police.
