A man believed to be in his late 30 has been stoned to death at Aputuogya-Abuontem in the Bosomtwe District of the Ashanti region.
The deceased was accused of stealing; though our checks indicate that the incident happened in the community last night, residents are tight-lipped over the development.
The suspect was reportedly beaten, tied to the back of a tricycle, and dragged around and stoned but refused to die; it was later discovered that he was wearing a talisman on his waist.
It was after his talisman was removed that his assailants were able to stone him to death with large concrete blocks; attempts were also made to set his body ablaze with car tyres.
In a related development, an angry mob at Awutu Bereku in the Awutu Senya West District of the Central region nearly lynched a 26-year-old man for allegedly stealing an air conditioner last night.
The man was also accused of previously stealing three different wedding gowns, delaying the marriage ceremonies of three women on different occasions.
The marauding youth after arresting Emmanuel Amoako stripped him naked, tied him to a tree with ropes to his neck, waist, and feet, after which he was beaten mercilessly and wounded.
It took the timely intervention of police in Awutu Bereku to prevent the mob from killing the suspect.
This comes only a night after all dogs in the community, who were contributing to security efforts in the community were killed on the orders of the traditional authorities, for being abominable to be kept on Awutu land.
