A group of angry Muslim youth on Friday nearly lynched an officer of the Ghana Police Service at Abossey Okai while they were heading to the Awudome cemetery around 9:00am for burial.
Reports indicated that the officer, who was nearly lynched, and is a member of the Motor Traffic and Transport Department, tried to stop the motor riders, who were in a funeral procession to the Audome cemetery, from causing vehicular traffic on the road.
In an interview, the Kaneshie Police Commander, ACP Fakye Kumi, told Adom News his timely intervention through the dispatch of a police patrol team to the scene saved the policeman.
“The policeman, who was on duty to direct traffic at the Awudome cemetery, stopped the youth who were in a procession. They became agitated and attacked the policeman creating a chaotic scene and we had to rush here to calm the situation,” he stated.
The policeman was later rushed to the hospital. Two of the suspects were arrested and sent to the Kaneshie Police Station.
