A 17-year-old form three student from Breman Nwomaso in the Central region narrowly avoided being lynched by members of a watchdog committee on his way home from evening lessons at 10:pm.
According to the victim, he was with coworkers when they were confronted by over ten committee members with firearms, cutlasses, a catapult, and pepper spray.
His buddies, he claimed, ran when they saw them.
However, the victim said that because he was coming from evening lessons, he chose to explain himself to the watchdog team, who instead slapped him six times.
He said that five separate ropes were used to haul and bind him to a light post.
He claimed that after firing warning shots, they beat him with the back of the cutlass, stripped him nude, and stoked him with sticks.
He slumped and awoke in a bed at the Our Lady of Grace Government Hospital in Breman Asikuma, undergoing treatment, according to him.
Examining his body revealed several attack marks on his buttocks, leg, hands, and back.
Meanwhile, the victim’s mother, Abena Kenkeba, has stated that her son is in pain.
She said that after abusing her kid, members of the watchdogs’ committee collected GH50 before releasing him.
