It took the intervention of a lotto seller and a military officer to prevent the men from further attacking the middle aged-man as he fell onto the ground with his funeral cloth. His nephew, Asiedu Kofi Abraham says he was assaulted by the ‘machomen’ in his bid to rescue his uncle.

According to him, the family will pursue the case to its logical conclusion.

“This matter will not end here. Even if we have to go to court, we will go. If we should go to Otumfuo [Asantehene], we will go. My uncle is in pains,” he insisted.
