According to some residents who reported the issue on Takoradi-based Connect FM monitored by Beanana, the deceased has been dressing like a roman father to deceive people who barely know him.
He is alleged to have recently carried out a robbery where he went dressed as a catholic priest and snatched the vehicle of another Catholic Priest. The whereabouts of the vehicle is still unknown. Members of the community have been targeting him and wanted an opportunity to grab him in the act. Fortunately, he went for a robbery operation in the early hours of Wednesday, April 6, 2022, but he did not succeed this time around.
The angry mob followed him and grabbed him whilst in action and subjected him to severe beatings. Nana Kwaku Dua who is popularly known as Power could not survive the beatings and gave up the ghost. The angry mob dumped his lifeless body at the house of his mother later and left the scene unidentified.

According to her, she saw his lifeless body lying in a pool of blood. She has since informed the police to convey the body to the mortuary for Autopsy and investigations.
The mother of the deceased, Auntie Yamoah expressed dissatisfaction with the action of the mob.

The traumatized mother added that she witnessed the entire beatings of his son. She called for help and nobody showed up to assist until her son could not breathe again.
