An alleged robber, one Kweku Abednego, was found in a pool of blood around the Light Industrial Area, Community One, Tema.
The victim was beaten and left for dead by a mob around dawn of Saturday, the 9th of July. The victim sustained injuries including a visible fractured head and a twisted ankle as he laid helpless in dirty and blood stained clothes.
Giving his side of the story, Kweku, who claims to be an indigene of Gomoa Jarman, in the Central Region, said he is a coconut salesman who operates within the Tema metropolis.
According to him, he woke up at 2 am to get to the wholesale joint to get some coconuts and on his way, he needed to adjust something on his hand-driven truck, and as such reached out for a piece of iron rod from a pile of rods within the said area.
In the process, he was taken to for a thief and the alarm was raised which attracted residents to the scene.
Chief Inspector Bonnie of the Community One Police Station, who was at the scene with his men, narrated a similar story in an interview with the Ghana News Agency.
He however said that it was too early to determine what really happened.
