26

Three persons are in the grip of the police for hanging two masons over a manhole at Danfa near Accra, after accusing them of stealing.

The two masons, Kwaku Akorli, 51 and Hope Hortor, 28, were tied to bamboo sticks and hanged over a manhole filled with water after they were accused by the owner of a construction site where they worked of stealing iron rods.

They were, however, rescued by the Adoteiman Police after distress calls from some concerned persons.

Briefing Graphic Online, the Public Relations Officer of the Accra Regional Police Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Mrs Effia Tenge, said the police upon receiving the distress calls at about 1:30pm on Monday, November 26, 2018 went to the scene immediately.

She said the two men were found tied separately to the bamboo sticks suspended over the manhole at the construction site where they had been working on the construction of a private building.
