- A man has been accused of stealing hens at Berekum in the Brong Ahafo Region
- Six hens were seen in a bag carried by the man
- He was humiliated and handed over to the police by the residents
A man has arrested for allegedly stealing hens at Berekum in the Brong Ahafo Region.
The man is said to have been caught with six hens which he had hidden in a bag.
A video on the incident, which is circulating on Facebook, showed residents booing him and chanting "hen thief" after he was caught.
The residents then took the man to Berekum Divisional Police headquarters.
The man may have been lucky to have escaped with his life, as the default posturing of many Ghanaians is to lynch a thief caught in the act.
It is possible that the residents were prevailed upon to take the man to the police station due to the outrage generated by Major Maxwell Mahama's killing.
