Suspects Kofi Naasei and Kofi Ase who have gone into hiding according to the Nkawie Police, stormed the house of the suspect now deceased, Akwasi Kwaa, 32 at about 2 am and accused him of theft.
They reportedly tied him to a metal lights pole and physically assaulted and dragged him to Akataninse, where they beat him until he died.
Pleas from the Sister of the deceased Maame Yaa Aso for them to hand the suspect over to the police was not heeded as Kofi Ase told her they would kill him just like all thieves.
An official complaint was lodged; the police proceeded to Akataninse and met the deceased lying dead in a prone position with a blue nylon rope tied to his neck and shoulder and an orange T-shirt hanging on the neck with a plastic bottle by the side.
There were multiple wounds on the body which was conveyed to Afari Community Hospital and deposited at the morgue pending autopsy.
That after the nefarious act, all the culprits ran away from the town but police have indicated that efforts are put in place to get the suspects arrested to face the full rigours of the law.
