Background

On February 14, 2017, a group of agitated young men was seen harassing and molesting a woman alleged to have stolen GHC 1100 at a shop in the busy hub of the Kumasi Kejetia Station.

The men mercilessly stripped the suspect naked, forced her legs open and abused her while parading her in shame on the streets as onlookers huddle around to hurl insults at her and even film the act.

Despite her pleas for mercy, her accusers continued to unleash instant justice on her.

She was later taken to the hospital to seek medical attention after which she was discharged following an intervention by the police.
