Many suspected ritual murder and also rape but the good news this morning is that police have arrested a suspect of the murder who is a family member called Kwabena Mankata.

According to Adom News reporter Isaac K Nomenyo, the youth of the town want to lynch the suspect and won't allow the police to put the criminal in their custody. In the heat of the situation, a police officer gave out a warning shot which made matters worse.

An interview with some of the youth revealed that they felt the police are protecting the suspected criminal but risking the lives of innocent citizens by the warning shot.

They also revealed that this is the third time such occurrences have happened therefore they want to teach the criminals a lesson.

Chief Superintendent Ohene Takyi said that police must protect the suspected criminal until he is proven guilty. Mob injustice should not reign superior over the law.
