- Some alleged thieves were busted at Ebony's one-week observance in Accra
- The alleged thieves were accused of taking advantage of the thick crowd to steal mobile phones and other belongings of people present
It is said that for everything that happens there will always be a hero and a villain.
That was exactly the case at the one-week observance of the late Ebony Reigns, who died on February 8, 2018.
While thousands of people trooped to the St. Martin De Porres School in Dansoman, Accra to pay their respect to the departed dancehall diva, not all were there with good intentions.
Two men were subjected to severe beatings at the memorial ceremony after allegedly trying to pickpocket the phones and monies of others.
The suspected criminals tried to take advantage of the mammoth crowd to perpetrate their own theft, but were caught and dealt with.
The two, whose names have not been disclosed yet, have since seen their photos go viral on social media platforms as they were being beaten.
It remains to be seen what further punishment they will receive, especially with the police being present at the time they were caught.
Late dancehall musician Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, aka Ebony Reigns will be buried in Accra on Saturday, March 17.
The family announced the date at a heavily attended one-week observation held Sunday at the St. Martin De Porres School at Dansoman in Accra.
Ebony, 21, died February 8 along with two others in an accident while returning from Sunyani where she had visited her mother.
Franky Kuri, a close pal of Ebony and a dancer, and soldier L/C Francis Atsu Vondee, were the other two victims when the Jeep car they travelled in collided head-on with a VIP bus.
The driver of the Jeep survived but is still on hospital admission.
