Information gathered by YEN.com.gh indicates that a suspect has been beaten to death by personnel of the Ghana Police Service at Seikwa in the Tain District of the Bono Region.
The suspect, 48-year-old Abdul Rahman, was reportedly picked up by the police for throwing stones at the windshield of a vehicle belonging to a bank manager at Seikwa, a report sighted on asaaseradio.com stated.
Beaten to a pulp during interrogation, Rahman succumbed to the inevitability of death as a result of the torture.
The officers “secretly” buried the suspect, relatives of the deceased told the pro-governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) news outlet.
The law enforcement officers allegedly buried the lifeless body of Rahman at the Seikwa cemetery at night.
Citing eyewitnesses, asaaseradio.com further reported that the officers were forced to exhume Rahman’s mortal remains after some irate youth threatened to vandalise the police station.
Meanwhile, the Crime Officer of the Bono Regional Police Command, DSP Kennedy Adu-Sei, said the case is yet to be brought to his attention.
