A man who claimed to be a firefighter and went about stealing palm oil and a palm kennel at Abeadze Towoboase in the Central Region has been nabbed.
The man whose name is yet to be identified and he is in his late 20s was spotted wearing a fire service uniform. He was caught in the act, he was given the beatings of his life.
On March 15, 2023, at dawn, the suspect was apprehended with more than ten gallons of stolen palm oil and a palm kennel from a palm oil factory.
It is thought that the suspect is a fake fire service officer because he refused to show his identification card or specify the fire station where he works when he was questioned.
The people kept a close eye on him as he took the palm oil, but he was caught just as he was about to flee. He was then severely beaten while pleading for mercy.
Later, the unidentified suspect was dragged to the Mankessim Divisional Police Station in Jedu for further inquiry.
