The Upper West Regional Police Command has arrested 25 people in Wa for attempting to forcefully secure the release of three suspects who were in Police custody for flogging the victims in the Wa viral video.

The 25 suspects were part of a mob who besieged the Wa Police Station on Wednesday, June 1, 2022, to demand the release of Sidiki Osman, Bushiran Khigir and Issahaku Mahama who were arrested earlier in the day and were in Police custody.

This was contained in a police statement signed by Chief Superintendent grace Ansah-Akrofi, Director of Public Affairs.

The statement continued to say “the irate mob pelted the charge office and adjoining offices with stones and other implements. The youth also set vehicle tires ablaze on some major streets in the municipality. In addition, they emptied the contents of dust bins on these roads and caused damage to some street lights and poles as well as some private properties along these roads. The rioting mob also blocked the major streets obstructing the free movement of vehicles.”

“We find the mob action which was calculated to derail the course of justice for the victims who were flogged in the Wa viral video unacceptable and we condemn it in no uncertain terms.”

The police said all the suspects and others who will be arrested in the course of investigations will be put before the court to face justice.
