Some residents of Suame Magazine, a town in Kumasi on Thursday morning, discovered the corpse of an unknown young man in the area.
The deceased was tied to an electric pole with blood stains on his body. According to reports, it is believed to be a mob attack.
Some traders in the area told Accra-based Class FM that the victim might have been lynched during Wednesday night’s heavy downpour over suspicion of theft.
Police in Suame have since deposited the body of the victim at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) morgue.
The Suame District Police Commander Superintendent Jude Cobbinah said police have begun investigations into the matter.
