A mob nearly lynched a man in his 30s for beheading a seven year old girl, Ewura Ama Agyapomaah in a thicket on Thursday morning at Asona, near Nkawkaw in the Eastern Region.
The suspect who is currently on admission at the hospital allegedly slit the girl’s throat and took away her tongue and heart, when she went to attend to nature’s call at a public toilet.
A little boy stumbled on the blood stained suspect in the act and raised an alarm which attracted scores of people to the scene.
Meanwhile the body of the deceased which was found at the toilet in a pool of blood has been deposited at the Nkawkaw Holy Family Hospital morgue awaiting autopsy.
Chief Supt. James Sarfo Peprah, the Nkawkaw Police commander confirmed the incident to Daily Guide.
