Kibi Police Command in Eastern Region has arrested four teenagers for ruthlessly beating the Headteacher of Salvation Army Basic School, Mr. George Somuah Bosompem to death.
The Headteacher, 55, was attacked for challenging the meddling of his garden by drug addicts who smoke and later poo in the school.
It has been gathered by our chief reporter Michel that four (4) days before the assault, the master went on an Information center to warn the youth to stop smoking in the school in order to prevent them from been arraigned before court for prosecution.
Kofi also gathered that, on April 28 this year, while the deceased was taking a stroll with a female friend, the suspected drug addicts confronted him, armed with sticks, stones, blocks among other deadly weapons.
The suspects did not also spare the lady friend of the deceased as they beat her.
The incident brought many residents to the scene; fortunately a Police Patrol team met the frenzied act and managed to arrest one of the suspects, Richard Amaning, 18, alias Konko. He pretended to be providing support to carry the deceased into a waiting vehicle but the other accomplices took to their hills.
Mr George Somuah was rushed to the Kibi Government Hospital and shortly transferred to the St. Joseph Hospital where he passed on.
Police investigations later led to the arrest of Mireku Emmanuel 17, Philip Okodie,17, and Paul Boadu,18.
Public Relations Officer for the Eastern Regional Police Command, DSP Ebenezer Tetteh confirmed the incident adding that, “the suspects will reappear in court on May 7, 2019 on the provisional charge of murder.”
He observed that efforts are underway to arrest all the other accomplices.
Meanwhile, Teachers at the Asiakwa Salvation Army Basic School are on a sit down strike ahead of a planned demonstration on May 10, 2019.
The incident is being reported barely 24 hours after angry residents of Muramura Community in Kwahu South District of the Eastern region lynched and set fire into the body of a 29-year-old mentally derailed Kofi Sammy for killing an eight-month-old Pregnant Woman, Alimatu Karim and mutilating and cooking parts of her body.
