Some angry youth have set a man ablaze over suspicion of being a member of a syndicate behind robberies in the Juaboso and adjoining districts in the Western North Region.
The suspect was among three members of the said syndicate apprehended by the youth. He was lynched and burnt to ashes in front of a Police station before police could intervene.
However, one managed to escape while the police managed to rescue the third suspect before they could lynch him.
According to reports, the angry youth descended heavily on the Police and threw stones at them and damaged their vehicles when the law enforcers attempted to rescue the suspects.
Eyewitnesses said the suspected robber was exposed after he was seen holding half a dozen mobile phones while trying to board a vehicle at the main Bonsu Nkwanta Lorry Station to Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
