Suspected Robber ‘Transformed’ Into Ashes

Reports emanating from Kasoa in the Central Region of Ghana indicates that a suspected robber has been burnt into ashes near Dr Jesus.

The deceased believed to be in his thirties with his identity and place of residence unknown was left to his fate to die at the early hours of Friday, 2 to 3 am when some assailants set him on fire for allegedly stealing.

Some eyewitnesses narrating the incident re-count that they saw nothing about the incident; they woke up this morning only to see someone burnt into ashes.

Others who were privileged to see some men burning afar something said it never occurred to them that what they were burning is a human being because the society was used to residents burning vehicle tyres.

“I woke up to pee around 2 am and saw some Muslim men burning something and murmur to myself as to why they were burning things at this late hour which will pollute our rooms. It was early in the morning when a neighbour approached me to inform me of the incident, which got me shocked.

We have been harassed by armed robbers but never have we encounter some being burnt in this manner. This robber seem to be tied with a rope,” an eyewitness narrate to the media.  

The resident then call the Kasoa divisional police command to which the body has been conveyed to the morgue.

The Police authority in Kasoa division is yet to comment on the unfortunate incident pending investigation.
