Hospital staff beaten mercilessly over kidnapping brouhaha
A Covid-19 records taker at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital ( CCTH), Emmanuel Bentil, has been mercilessly beaten by five young men, a pragya rider and four others at Siwdo Methodist opposite Kingdom FM.
The culprits, upon seeing Mr. Bentil leading the small boy to locate his parents, assumed he was a kidnapper and pounced on the victim.
The victim claimed that he saw the small boy crying by the roadside on Tuesday around 10:00 am and decided to find out why he was crying.
According to CCTH staff, the boy told him [Bentil] to take him to his parents, whom he said live Siwdo, a Cape Coast suburb.
Narrating his ordeal further, he said after he gave the boy to his parents four boys, together with a ‘pragya’ rider, approached him and asked him where he was taking the boy to and without waiting for his response, subjected him to a mob action with cement blocks, sticks among other weapons.
“They kidnapped me in a room and when l was becoming unconscious, I sneaked out and ran to Abura Police Station to report the case but due to how l was bleeding profusely, they also dragged me out of the police station with a cane… l later rushed to the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital for treatment,” he told Angel News’ Anaafi Kokooto in an interview.
But for the intervention by some residents, the boys would have beat him to death, he stated.
