Bono East:Human Rights Organization Condemns Alleged Assault Of Teenager

Youth For Human Rights International Ghana, a human rights organization operating in the Bono and Ahafo Regions, has strongly condemned the alleged brutal treatment of a 17-year-old boy named Kwabena Amos in Salamkrom, a farming community within the Nkoransa South Municipality of the Bono East Region.

 The alleged reason for this assault was the teenager’s purported theft of his father’s maize, which he supposedly sold to purchase a pair of shoes.

 According to reports, the 17-year-old was subjected to beatings by individuals identified as personnel from the Ghana National Fire Service and some Unit Committee members residing in Salamkrom, near Donkro-Nkwanta. These individuals accused him of stealing his father’s maize to fund the purchase of footwear.

 Presently, the victim is undergoing medical treatment at Armdfred Hospital in Nkoransa, where Dr. Julius Edem, a medical officer, stated that they are making every effort to treat the victim’s injuries.

 Dominic Baffoe-Adjei, the Bono and Ahafo Coordinator for Youth for Human Rights International Ghana, accompanied by senior officers from the Ghana National Fire Service Nkoranza South and Lord Kingsford Appiah, a special aide to the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), visited the victim.

 In an interview with Citi News, Dominic Baffoe-Adjei condemned the incident and called upon the police to initiate a thorough investigation.

 “We strongly condemn the brutality inflicted upon this innocent young boy. We have officially reported the incident to the Nkoransa Police Command, and we trust that they will promptly investigate this matter.”

 Efforts to obtain a statement from the police regarding the issue proved unsuccessful.
