A 55-year-old man has been lynched at a drinking spot for allegedly stealing GH¢1, 50 pesewas.

The deceased, Kofi Amoako Sensen was beaten to death after the owner of the pub accused him of stealing her money.

This unfortunate incident occurred at Fetteh Kakraba in the Gomoa East district of the Central region.

Brother of the deceased, Akwesi Boadi who confirmed this unfortunate incident to Adom News’ Kofi Adjei said his brother had finished having some drinks and was leaving when the owner called her money had been stolen.

The deceased who was the only one at the pub was accused of stealing the money thus when he denied stealing the money, the lady raised alarm.

Mr. Boadi said the residents mostly men who rushed to the shop did not even ask his side of the story pounced on the deceased and subjected and beat him to pulp.

  1. What’s happening nowadays koraa, why instant justice is taking over some people in Ghana, 1.50pesewas so they have kill someone’s father, Those people must be deal with,the most painful thing is the person is already been killed,no matter the punishment, they can’t bring him back again. Hmm.

  2. Why is Ghana like this now. Almost everywhere in Ghana they are saying northerners are violent but this instant justice we northerners don’t believe in it. Please let’s change!!! MOP ACTION IS INHUMANE STOP IT NOW!!!!!

  3. How can we be soo bad in this country..
    Last week a captain was killed and dis week too bks of ghc 1.50pws a man has lost his life… ahhhhhh what at all are we doing..

  4. It’s about time we took perpetrators of such inhumane act on with appropriate legal actions. Authorities need to teach Gahanaians what the law says abouy instant justice. The earlier we took actions, the better for all of us.

  5. So Ghanaians are just not ready to Change!! Gradually the people of Central Region are becoming notorious in these dastardly killings.

    The Chiefs there must wake up!!

  6. Suicide spree last and now mob action … what’s happening in especially the central reason… my suggestion is the illiteracy rate is very high there …civilization has not reached maximum effect there…The illiterates there outnumbers the reasonable ones..Also the area where Our dear brother Captain Maxwell Mahahma was barbarically murdered,should be evacuated as they’ve done and to be used as military base.

  7. I pray the soldiers who were on the people of Denkyira Boasi to go and punish these people too the same way coz this man too is a human being, Ghanaian, tax payer, and probably a father.

  8. This violent trend just isnt in Ghana, my dear brothers and sisters….I live in the states and I assure you this is happening all over the world. There is a great evil that is driving men of all nations to do such things and its going to get worse. No corner of the earth is safe. Not anymore.

  9. Nana have to use his common sense.he donr have to listen to some members of the party.or else.his time will be short.all this started when the delta force people refuse to respect the law of the nation.so when the constitution broke.what comes?murder,stealing,cheating etc.cos the law is not working.so to aviod all this lawleness act.kindly let the delta force go back to the court room.and face their judgement.cos they are not above the law.

  10. What ever you sow is exactly what you reap!
    “all die be die” has taken over the entire country. The President’s words way back 2012 is now in action.
    Only prayer can save Mother Ghana.Our populary known MEN OF GOD today are also wearing political lens.

  11. Let’s not be pretenders. Mob lynching has always been there. We are only waking up due to the unfortunate incident of captain. We have sat idle for so many decades and allowed this bad acts to eat into pur society. Let it be a lesson, and let’s fight it. Let’s not write oooooh, as if we havent heard it before. Let’s act on it rather

  12. This shit must stop man!!! People still stand to watch this outraging attitude taking place, and none can halt the idiot. The Ghanaian government must enforce human rights act to break down the stupid actions. How can this continue to play a role in the Ghanaian society in the 21st century? It’s utterly a disgraceful act. Shame on you and your government for not educating and enforcing the human right acts, making sure the police do their job properly.

  13. It’s all because of corruption everywhere and our judicial system is not working properly, you call this a democracy, Ghana a lawlessness county, don’t you dare think of doing business in Ghana the military the police the judicial is so corrupt, greedy is everywhere in the government,

  14. I wonder why some people make useless and partisan comments on issues which are very sensitive.
    Must everything be politicized in this country? And what has this lynching got to do with Delta Force,the president and the ruling government?
    Let’s grow beyond politics and see things just the way they are. People must make meaningful and reasonable comments and stop this foolish and problematic propaganda which isn’t helping us as a nation.

  15. It is sad how we can do this to our fellow. Where are our values as children of God. We are so quick to subject people to all forms of things for their shortcomings instered giving out a helping hand. We forget we are fallible beings too but God is always merciful regardless of the gravity of our sins. Fellow Ghanaians, I beg you in the name of God to help preserve precious lives by saying no to lynching. Let us be merciful no matter the offences of others just as our heavenly Father is merciful. My humble plea.

  16. BLAME NANA ADD FOR THIS!!!!!! THIS LAWLESSNESS BEGAN WITH THE CONSENT OF NANA ADD DANKWA AKUFFO ADD WHEN HE BEGAN TO GIVE THE TERRORIST GROUPS CALLED INVISIBLE FORCES AND DELTA FORCES TO GO AHEAD AND BEAT TOLL BOOTH PERSONNEL AND REGIONAL APPOINTEES WITH IMPUNITY WITHOUT A WORD OF CONDEMNATION FROM THE USELESS PRESIDENT! THIS IS NOT THE CHANGED WE CAMPAIGNED FOR! THIS IS NOT THE CHANGE WE VOTED FOR!!!!!

    #USELES_CEREMONIAL_PRESIDENT_NANA_ADDO_DANKWA_AKUFFO _ADDO_MUST_GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. People are suffering a blame the churches cos the money that few pastors are sitting on . if it were in circulation , some could have had 1.50 peswas as usual I know ignorant fools would not understand me . yet they clap for the one who says you are too rich to receive and you are not too poor to give.

  18. Hymmm this leaching will continue because this the best way the poor can have justice for them selves.E.c.g issue came in somanya but no one telling them anything and e.c.g didnt give them bill since apriel they pack it and bill them.we are careless in this our country

  19. Comment:am seeing people talking pointedly about about central region. because of common guinea fowl a chief in de northern was beheaded .we are not saying it a good thing to do, but we are humans so let get brain’s and talk sense in the public

  20. I read people writing now now now. This has been in existence for so many years. I don’t even know when it started. My guess is must have been before I was born. This is why I was annoyed at the hypocrisy of media, government and almost whole nation about Captain Mahama’s case. Within that same week at least two different lynching incidents were reported in Kumasi and in northern region. Now where are the voices? What actually was the plan to bring this whole incidents to a total halt? Sad but we can do nothing other than keep fighting on for mother Ghana… God bless our homeland and make us great and strong

  21. Lets see how to solve our mistakes than to talk of politics, if u no what is good why don’t u do it but waiting for nana to tell u, are sure ur brothers are not part of the injustice, why don’t U advise them

  22. I am very amazed that mob justice is prevalent in Ghana. We Africans have great respect for Ghana, but some so-called modern Ghanaians are exhibiting a strong sense of cruelty, backwardness, insensitivity, disregard for the sanctity of life, and a rampant disregard for human security and dignity. Over the years, Ghanaians have been seen as a peaceful and law abiding people. But these recent developments need to be checked, perpetrators involved in these acts be identified, traced, located, investigated, and prosecuted according to law in a court of competent jurisdiction. Impunity for such barbaric tendencies shall not be countenanced. Ghanaians must never become a blood thirsty people. This is unrepresentative of Ghanaians.

    • Bro Kofie Kakaba, yours is the most civilly written piece of all the comments written about this issue. God bless you, and I just pray that Ghanaians, one and all, will listen to your voice of conscience. As for those making those irresponsible partisan and outrageous comments attacking the President and his NPP Party, we can only pity them. Thank you.

  23. I blame de police for the upsurge of mob justice in Ghana.A police officer at de Budumburam ,kasoa assaulted me at the police station when I logged a complaint about thief who stole iron rods and caught red handed. De police officer became a judge and ruled in favour of de alleged thief n de thief took de iron rods away.After heaping insults on me de police officer
    attempted to smash me when I inquired de basis of his insults.l have lost confidence in de police service .

  24. The people with power are causing all these nonsense my brothers. Arrest a criminal today and tomorrow you see him walking around. Ghana is moving forward faster than we can possibly imagine in the wrong direction. Those who are involved in instant justice should learn to give all to God who knows best. As for Ghana, money and power work instead of the law which is supposed to be supreme

  25. Comment: you guys should talk like someone who have head. “a fool’s lips result in violence but his own foolishness cause in for his own destruction. why do you mansion C/R?

  26. HMMMM. WHAT IS GOING ON AT THIS ERA OF TIME. GHANAIANS SHOULD KNOW HOW TO REACT TO THEIR BROTHERS AND SISTER. THEY SHOULDN,T RESPECT THE RICH AND DESRESPET THE POOL. WE ARE ALL ONE FAMILY IN CHRIST SEEK. MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEFECT PEACE AND THE ACUSERS SHOULD HOLD RESPONSIBLE BY THE AUTHORITY

  27. Please do we still have military men and police around. Remember major mahama. How the military storm denkyira obuoase and branded the town as if the people in the whole town murdered the man. I think this is the time. We must stand as a security men over Ghana and protect our people and the image of mother Ghana. God bless us all.

  28. The number of black people police in America kill daily far outnumber these crimes we have in Ghana. Our system is flawed and need fixing, the people need to change too… However I find it interesting when u guys speak of the US as if it were a perfect place…
