Brother of the victim, Kwaku Dorlah, who spoke to Adom News said his brother and other youth were sent by the chief of the town to protect the land.

He said the victim tried to escape but was stabbed in the groin by one of the land guards.

“The police later came to their rescue but later arrested the victim and his friends for starting the fight,” he said.

What was even worrying, Mr Dorlah said was the decision by the police to detain his injured brother.

“My brother was put in the cell while bleeding profusely and all attempts to get him released proved futile,” he said.
