Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A video going viral on social media shows a young boy who was flogged mercilessly by a gang of men he mistook to be robbers.
YEN.com.gh cited the video on GhanaWeb.com where it was made clear that the boy is from Sowutuom in Accra.
His name is withheld, but his identity is not hidden as his face was shown to the camera repeatedly. According to the boy, he had worked for an African-American who is in the habit of cheating her employees.
He said he was not paid and wanted to use another means of getting his money, which was why he contacted the gang.
In the video, the gentleman who appeared to be the leader of the gang narrated how the boy contacted him, asking for the 'favour'.
According to him, the boy asked that they should go and attack the woman forcefully take her money. The boy went on further to send the 'gang leader' to survey where the woman lives and said he will stay back whilst they embark on the mission.
It appears that the 'gang leader' allowed all the process to happen to establish conrete evidence that the young boy wanted a robbery attack.
After he was made to confess, the boy was flogged by the gang in what may be a lesson he will never forget.

Attempting to recruit armed robbers is not the only thing that can earn someone lashes. Just recently, YEN.com.gh reported that an unnamed pastor has been captured in a recent video caning his members who were seen lying on the floor.
The church members received the lashes because they were absent during a Sunday service. It is not known if the pastor had a register he marked which revealed those who were absent.
The language he speaks is not too familiar which may mean this did not happen in Ghana
