Ex-prison officer beaten mercilessly for stealing cooking utensils

A former prison officer who doubles as an ex-convict has been arrested and nearly lynched for allegedly stealing cooking utensils and building materials at Abura Dunkwa in the Central Region.

The suspect, reportedly sacked from the Prisons Service for alleged criminal conduct, was busted on Saturday, April 22, 2023, at about 5:00 pm after stealing a sack full of cooking utensils.

Before then, he had stolen building materials from a nearby shop and had kept them elsewhere.

After his arrest, he led the residents to where he had kept and surrendered the items.

The suspect was stripped naked by residents, beaten up and nearly killed.

It is reported that, but for the timely arrival of the police, the suspect would have been lynched.

The police took the suspect to the Abura Dunkwa police station, where he is assisting with investigations.

The retrieved materials were subsequently handed over to the owners.

Residents have lamented the rampant theft in the community and have threatened to deal ruthlessly with any thief arrested.
