Two policemen asked to arrest a suspect at Ehwiaa, near Mamponteng, in Ashanti, may still be cursing their stars as they were ‘shit-bombed’ by the suspect’s relatives.
One of the relatives, was said to have dashed for a chamber pot containing urine and faeces and splashed it on the two policemen attached to the Mamponteng Police station.
As if that was not enough, the relatives allegedly attacked the policemen, leading to a call for reinforcement from Mamponteng police.
Eye witnesses told The Ghanaian Times that the policemen had gone to the house of the suspect, only known as Bright, 20, to arrest him for allegedly stabbing a friend with a knife.
According to the source, Bright hid somewhere in the house and the relatives told the police the suspect was not in the house.
The source said policemen, however, saw Bright grabbed him, but a relative dashed for the chamber pot and bathed them with urine and faeces.
The suspect took to his heels, but Emmanuel Osei Kofi, said to be the ring leader was arrested.
By the time the police reinforcement arrived, the rest of the relatives had fled
A police source, which confirmed the incident to The Ghanaian Times said efforts had been stepped up to arrest the suspect and the other relatives.
