An angry mob at Nkurakan, a suburb of Koforidua on Wednesday attacked and stabbed to death a suspected motorbike thief.

The 24-year old Prince Tetteh, who was a welder, was accused of stealing a Royal motor bike with registration number M-11-ER 574 at Nkurakan at about 8am.

Prince was said to have first stabbed one Ernest Teye, a 32 year old man who was among the first responders and attempted to bolt.

His accomplice, however, managed to escape but the mob traced Prince to a distance and apprehended and lynched him.

The Eastern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ebenezer Tetteh, told Graphic Online that Teye was responding to treatment at the Koforidua Regional hospital.
