Six men have been arrested at Agogo in Ashanti Region of Ghana, for inserting a thick long stick into the anus of a 16-year-old boy suspected to be a thief.
The suspects identified as 24-year-old Kwasi Marfo, 65-year-old Boakye Danquah, 53-year-old Osei Bonsu, 26-year-old Kofi Asiedu, 30-year-old Obeng Mensah and a 79-year-old man were caught on camera carrying out the act.
The video was captured by those who claimed to have caught the boy stealing in their neighborhood.
The 79-year-old man in the video who was the first person to be arrested by the police following a missing person complaint filed by the boy’s family, aided the police in the arrest of the remaining 5 people who participated in the stick insertion.
Upon being interrogated, they claimed not knowing the boy’s whereabouts, alleging that they untied him and left him to go after the stick was inserted into his anus.
While the boy has now been found by the police and is receiving treatments from a hospital, the men are still in police custody assisting in investigations.
