General News of Saturday, 18 February 2017
A young lady accused of having stolen GHS1,100 ($250) on Friday, February 17 was stripped naked, beaten, and paraded barefooted on the streets of Kejetia in Kumasi, the Ashanti regional capital, by a marauding crowd of men, who repeatedly pushed her down, forced her legs open for mobile phone pictures and videos to be taken of her vagina while others violently inserted their toes into her orifice and spanked her buttocks simultaneously in a noisy melee.
Desperate pleas by the fair-skinned alleged lady thief, whose clothes were all torn off except for her red brassiere, did not deter her Twi-speaking accusers from unleashing instant justice on her.
The irate crowd slapped, shoved, pulled and pushed the lady in every direction while groping her private parts.
In a short video that captured the whole incident, the lady is seen falling motionless on the street at a point, but the crowd kept hitting her and forcing her legs open.
Intermittent shouts by one or two men who pleaded on the lady’s behalf did not help matters as the crowd kept violently slapping and kicking the alleged thief in the vagina.
