The Police Service is warning the public to desist from attacking people they suspect to be homosexuals.
According to the police, it is illegal for any group of individuals to take the laws into their hands and attack gay suspects.
The warning comes on the back of reports that a popular entertainment personality in Accra was been beaten to a pulp after he was allegedly caught attempting to have sex with a fellow man.
Kinto, as the young man is popular called, was reportedly attacked at New Town in Accra after Sunday’s AFCON finals between Ghana and Ivory Coast.
Commenting on the matter on Morning Starr Wednesday, Spokesperson for the Police Service, Superintendent Cephas Arthur said mob justice is an intolerable act which must not be condoned by society.
“There are people who are still doing that and it is very reprehensible.
“Because until a person is found to be guilty of any offence by any court of competent jurisdiction, nobody can mete out his or her own punishment to a suspect.
“At any particular point in time that a person is suspected to have committed an offence, he is merely a suspect and you cannot give him your own punishment,” he warned.
