A 32-year-old alleged kidnapper has been rushed to the hospital after he was beaten to a pulp by some angry residents for kidnapping two children.
This incident happened at Ahenkro in the Afigya Kwabre North district of the Ashanti Region.
The young man identified as Alhassan allegedly kidnapped the kids on 31st July and posed at their sibling when he was questioned.
