31 charged with PM's murder

By myjoyonline
Thirty one people arrested in connection with the murder of Anthony Yeboah Boateng, Presiding Member of Asunafo North District Assembly were yesterday charged with murder after appearing before a magistrate's court.

They have been remanded in custody until Monday, May 28.

The late Anthony Yeboah was stoned to death in the early hours of Easter Monday by some youth of Atronie, near Sunyani.

Mr Yeboah who was also the Administrator of the Goaso Government Hospital was together with his wife and a Catholic nun conveying the corpse of the nun's mother from Sunyani to the hospital's mortuary in his car.

At Atronie, the youth who were said to have mounted a barrier in the middle of the road, stopped him and upon seeing the corpse, demanded an explanation.

As he tried to explain, some of the youth who accused him of carrying the body for rituals, attacked, stoned and clubbed him to death.

But for the timely intervention of the police at Atronie, the two women would have also been lynched.

Following this, the police arrested some suspects and after a thorough screening those found culpable were processed for court.
