The deceased, only identified as Yaw, was found dead on the compound of the Adumadze MA Basic School at about 0700 hours with broken blocks, stones and other objects, which were apparently used in lynching him, scattered around the body
Briefing the Ghana News Agency (GNA), Sergeant Raymond Asaba, the Central Regional Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Police Service, said the Police had information that a dead body was lying on the School’s compound.
He said the Police rushed to the scene and found the deceased tied with a rope around his neck with a dead goat, which he was alleged to have stolen beside him.
He said the body had since been deposited at the Central Regional Teaching Hospital for autopsy, while the Police were conducting investigations into the matter.
Sgt Asaba urged the public to hand over suspected criminals to the Police rather than lynching them.
