Dozens of traders at the Kumasi Central Business District have been arrested by the Police in a bid to identify those who took part in the stripping of a woman they suspected to be a thief.
A screening exercise is expected to be conducted today in that regard.
In a video circulating on social media, the mob who accused the young woman of stealing, beat her up until she lost consciousness.
The worrying video begins at a point where the young lady whose identity is not immediately known had been stripped of her clothes. She had covered her waist with a yellow scarf given to her by a good Samaritan, but it was removed by the mob.
Another woman who tried to give the victim a dress was jostled and the victim prevented from wearing it.
The pepertrators mostly men, tore the young lady’s red brassier and panty. The culprits then spread her legs wide open and kicked her private part many times.
The victim believed to be a Nigerian is alleged to have been caught attempting to steal GH¢1,100 from a shop owner in the PZ Area in Adum, Kumasi.
The Minister of Gender, Women and Social Protection, Otiko Afisa Djaba, Civil Society Organizations including Occupy Ghana and a host of Gender Activists have roundly condemned the dastardly act on the victim.
