A young man believed to be in his 30’s has been subjected to severe beating and manhandling by a task force formed by the Afigya Kwabre South District of the Ashanti Region
A bizarre footage intercepted by Akoma FM shows how some well built men numbering seven clad in military uniform beat a young man to pulp.
Identified as John Okyere, the victim who suffered the said barbaric act by the task force team exclusively spoke on Akoma FM‘s current affairs and political show GhanAkoma Wednesday, June 15 and explained that he is a mason and was working on a project site at Kodie.
He further recounted his ordeal to the sit-in host of the show JB that “whiles I was working at the site, some people came in a branded pick-up truck with the Assembly’s brand embossed on the left and right sides of the truck. They asked me to stop working so I decided to gather my tools and they restrained me from taking my own tools then they pounced on me and started beating me left right center”.
The young man explained that the taskforce team, after beating him left him, in an unconscious state and fled.
He added that but for the timely intervention of some nearby residents who showed concerns and rushed him to the hospital, a different story might have been told.
John Okyere further appealed for swift police investigation to ensure justice is served.
The District Chief Executive for the area, Adu Poku Christian, during an off-air conversation, explained that he has just chanced on the said videos so he will summon those involved for appropriate sanctions.
