Sanni Mohammed, a former winner of the Ghana’s Most Strongest Mancompetition has been arrested for viciously beating up a Catholic priest and stabbing another on Sunday.
According to Modern Ghana, the 24-year-old hefty man reportedly assaulted Father Anthony Awuah Boateng by punching him continually in the face. As Rev. Father Daniel Affum, Parish Priest of Adugyama Roman Catholic Church, tried to intervene, the strong man stabbed him in the head.
Sanni Mohammed then fled the scene on his motorbike, but he was nabbed by the police at Adugyama on Monday.
Confirming the arrest, ASP Mohammed Yussif Tanko of the Ashanti Regional Police PRO, said Mohammed has been transferred to the regional police headquarters in Kumasi.
Narrating how the altercation began, here’s what Modern Ghana gathered from the ASP:
“Father Awuah Boateng was traveling in his Toyota Corolla, registered AW 1722-13, at about 5:30 pm on Sunday from Bimso Number One and heading to Mankranso; and on the way he came across Mohammed. The accused was said to be displaying with a motorbike in a dangerous fashion right in the middle of the road and so the man of God reportedly bypassed him and left in peace.
The macho man then claimed that Father Awuah Boateng’s vehicle had hit his motorbike and so he gave the Catholic Father a wild chase with his motorbike in a Hollywood fashion. Mohammed finally caught up with Father Awuah Boateng at Adugyama, where he (suspect) smashed the tail light and side mirror of his vehicle in public.
Before Father Awuah Boateng could open his mouth, Mohammed, who was extremely angry, pounced on him with deadly blows, sending him to the ground. The suspect then followed Father Awuah Boateng to his residence where he continued hitting his already swollen face with countless hefty blows. Rev Father
Affum then intervened by pleading with Mohammed to stop beating his colleague, but his apology rather ended in a bloody scene as the suspect allegedly stabbed him in the head with a knife.”
Mohammed is currently being investigated for assault and causing unlawful harm.
