Kwaku Enoch, the 14-year-old boy from Agogo in Ashanti Region of Ghana whom a group of 6 men inserted a thick long stick into his anus for allegedly being a suspected thief has spoken on his health for the first time.
On July 12, news on Enoch Kwaku’s misfortune traveled like wildfire across most online new outlets. According to the story, Enoch is a suspected thief and he was caught in the act and instead of reporting him to the police, 6 men took the law into their own hands and manhandled him.
Oheneba Media is one online platform that followed up and updated Ghanaians on Enoch’s situation, and they even paid him a visit in the hospital where he was confined.
In a one-on-one interview with Oheneba Media, Kwaku Enoch said that he was unaware of when and how he was admitted to the hospital.
He went on to say that he is doing well now and that the doctors at Agogo have taken good care of him.
Watch the video below:
The six men have been arrested at Agogo in Ashanti Region of Ghana, for inserting a thick long stick into the anus of a 16-year-old boy suspected to be a thief.
The suspects identified as 24-year-old Kwasi Marfo, 65-year-old Boakye Danquah, 53-year-old Osei Bonsu, 26-year-old Kofi Asiedu, 30-year-old Obeng Mensah and a 79-year-old man were caught on camera carrying out the act.
The video was captured by those who claimed to have caught the boy stealing in their neighborhood.
The 79-year-old man in the video who was the first person to be arrested by the police following a missing person complaint filed by the boy’s family, aided the police in the arrest of the remaining 5 people who participated in the stick insertion.
Upon being interrogated, they claimed not knowing the boy’s whereabouts, alleging that they untied him and left him to go after the stick was inserted into his anus.
While the boy has now been found by the police and is receiving treatments from a hospital, the men are still in police custody assisting in investigations.
