The Assembly Member for Babianiha in Jaman South Municipality in the Bono Region Hon. Simon Obengwas arrested yesterday by the Drobo Police for murdering one Northerner who he claimed was a thief in his community.
The story says, in the early morning of Thursday 8th September 2022, the Drobo Police command received a call from the community that a young man in his early thirties was lying lifeless on the streets of Babianiha, a community in the Jaman South Municipality of the Bono Region.
Police followed up to the scene and upon reaching there realized he was not dead yet. Police rushed the victim to the Drobo St. Mary’s hospital for assistance, but died just a while afterwards.
Police begun their investigations and found out that the young man was picked up from his house at dawn by the Assembly Member with some group of men from the Babianiha community with the accusation that he was responsible for the many theft cases happening in the area. The young man denied any knowledge of the accusation, which infuriated the teeming youth and started beating him up upon the Assembly Member’s instruction.
Some angry youths struck him with stones and other materials.
He has been charged with murder and is to be arranged before the Berekum Circuit Court on the Friday, 9th September.
