A police officer has allegedly been lynched by an angry crowd at Basa in the Sene East District of the Bono East region.
The deceased police officer identified as Kusi was killed after he reportedly stabbed two people with a knife to death. The deceased are Nana Osei Owusu, a retired educationist and the Gyaasehene of the Basa Traditional Council, and Mama Sarah.
According to residents, the officer suspected to be mentally unstable has been terrorising co-tenants and other neighbours for some time now.
They revealed that Kusi in a fit of rage stabbed Mama Sarah and Nana Osei Owusu who had gone to the scene to try and restore calm in the stomach.
Realising that his life was in danger, he rushed to the Basa Police Station to seek refuge but he was pursued by some angry crowd and lynched.
The bodies of the three deceased persons have been deposited at the Kwame Danso Government Hospital.
