A man, believed to be in his late 30s, has been beaten to a pulp by a group of motorcycle riders at Senya Bereku in the Awutu Senya West District of the Central Region over an allegation of causing the disappearance of a colleague rider’s penis. 

On Tuesday, April 10 at around 22:00hrs at Zion C Basic School at Senya Bereku, a group numbered about 30 welding metals, stones and sticks stormed the residence of the victim, identified as Mr Isaac Saint and alleged that a ‘pragya’ driver informed them that his penis got missing after he picked the victim.  

According to some eyewitnesses, the pragya driver claimed that his penis varnished a few minutes after dropping off the victim at home. 

An eyewitness said the victim was beaten with metals, sticks, and stones among others as no pleadings could save him from the angry youth.

The witness said there was blood oozing from his nostrils, head and other parts of his body before the police came to his rescue. 

The Senya Bereku police later accompanied the complainant for a medical examination at the Senya Polyclinic but found his penis intact. 

He told the police he had visited a spiritual healer at Jehovah El Shaddhai 7th Day Sabbath Assembly at Senya who prayed for him.  

The police after the examination arrested the complainant and the spiritual healer, who are currently in police custody, while the victim is receiving treatment at the Winneba Specialist and Trauma Hospital. 

When the Ghana News Agency (GNA) visited the church, some of the people claimed that the complainant approached the prayer grounds with a shrunken penis and that the pastor prayed for him.

They also insist that the pastor was innocent. 

During a follow-up at Senya Polyclinic, Acting Medical Superintendent, Dr Samuel Agyapong, told the GNA that the man reported to the facility, but he found out after the examination that the information was false.  

He advised the public not to blindly brutalise people based on mere allegations but first verify through a medical examination.
