Five people are receiving treatment at Apam Hospital after a funeral of a motor rider turned bloody at Apam in the Gomoa West District of the Central Region.

According to reports, a group of land guards from Ashaiman was hired to beat the youth in the town.

After the land guards started beating the youth in the town, the fishermen retaliated leading to the destruction of vehicles and other property in the town.

The 2018 best fisherman, Appiah Bonsu, whose finger was caught off with a cutlass, confirmed the incident to Adom News.

“The motor guys stormed our environment and started beating our people for no reason including pregnant women,” he added.

Abusuapayin Kwesi Arthur, who also received several beatings, called on the police to arrest the perpetrators and bring them to book.

Meanwhile, the motorbikes allegedly used by the landguards have been detained at Apam District Police Command.
