According to some residents, the suspects are not known in the community and are believed to have been hired by some individuals to perpetrate the act.

Tufohene of Assin Breku, Nana Kotroka Frimpong Baah, attempted to save the suspects but was prevented by the angry mob.

“What is worrying is that the mob did not have patience but killed the suspects. If they had taken their time, we would have found the killers who sent the individuals to engage in this act. This generation is really after money and we see these things on our television screens.

“The youth are deceived into believing that quick money is good and this is what is pushing most of the youth into engaging in these acts,” Kwabena Appiah a resident said.

Meanwhile, the police have taken over the matter as investigations have begun into the matter.

The body of the deceased has been deposited at the St. Francis Xavier Hospital morgue for autopsy and Preservation.

No arrest has been made yet.
