A thief who allegedly attempted to steal the battery of a mini bus [trotro] at about 9:30pm on Wednesday was beaten to death by an angry mob at Mamobi in Accra, according to a report by graphic.com.gh.
The bus's driver is said to have parked the vehicle by the side of the road and had gone into a nearby cinema to watch a football match.
Realising that the place was quiet, the alleged thief is said to have broken into the car and attempted to leave with the battery.
However, the driver arrived just in time to catch him, leading to exchanges that drew the attention of passers-by who immediately set upon the alleged thief and began beating and stabbing him with various sharp objects including a knife, according to the report.
He is said to have died before the police arrived at the scene.
