The Ashanti Regional Police Command has taken over investigations into circumstances under which two Catholic priests were assaulted by a ‘machoman’ at Mankranso last Saturday.

The victims, Rev. Father Anthony Awuah Boateng and Rev. Father Daniel Afum, were admitted at the St Edward Hospital and the Mankranso Government Hospital, respectively for treatment.

The suspect, identified as Sani Mohammed, who is said to be winner of TV3's Ghana's Most Strongest contest in 2013 is currently on police inquiry bail.

Narrating the incident, the Mankranso District Police Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Mr John Adusei, told the Daily Graphic that around 5 p.m. last Saturday, police received information about an assault incident at Adugyama.

DSP Adusei said Rev. Fr Boateng was travelling from Adugyama to Biemso Number Two in his pick-up last Saturday when Mohammed, who was riding a motorbike, crossed him.

The priest, who got offended by Mohammed’s act stopped and advised the suspect not to ride carelessly next time.

The comments did not go down well with the suspect, who subsequently chased the priest on his motorbike to the mission house where he ended up assaulting the priest.

The suspect later inflicted machete wounds on the victim’s colleague, Father Afum, who intervened to calm nerves.

The priests were rushed to the hospital for medical attention. Police subsequently rushed to the scene and arrested the suspect, who has currently been granted bail.
