A thirty year old man identified as a Kwadwo Nyamekye aka Asante was nearly lynched this morning at East Tanokrom, a suburb of Takoradi after news broke that he has allegedly raped his seven year old step daughter.

But for the timely intervention of the assembly member, George Adarkwa and an Islamic Scholar, Alhaji Saeed Hamid Jallo, the suspect would have been lynched by a marauding gang of locals.

Asante was saved and handed over to police personnel at the Takoradi Central police station who has since been detained for further investigations.

A community Nurse who spoke to Empire News’ Emmanuel Ohene-Gyan on condition of anonymity said a medical examination of the victim shows bruises on her private parts. – Ohene Gyan
