“I was in my room sleeping around 3:00am when I heard someone knocking on the door.
“He pleaded with me to repair his motor for him. I initially rejected the offer because the time was not favourable but he insisted I come out to talk to him, which I obliged. Immediately, I opened my door, three more men came and they started beating me. They had machetes, iron rods, and many weapons. They inflicted me with deep machete and iron rod wounds and took me to the police station,” Prince Amoah narrated.
Mr. Prince Amoah added that the police officer on duty asked the angry men to take him to the hospital and that was when they men realized that they had beaten the wrong person.
“On our way to the hospital, they looked at me again and realized I was not the one they were looking for and that I was a mistaken identity. They dropped me off and gave me GH¢50 to pay for my hospital bills and left,” he sadly added.
The teenager is currently receiving treatment at a medical center and the case has since been reported to the local police. It is hope that the culprits will be arrested since the case has been reported to the police.
