A couple of hefty slaps from some operatives of Operation Vanguard at Akrokerri in the Adansi North District of the Ashanti region was just what it took for a Methodist Pastor to abandon his Christian faith and run for refuge under the dreaded Ashanti deity, Antoa, mynewsgh reports.

Rev. Shadrach Ato Mensah, one of the priests at the Obuasi Akaporiso Methodist Church was reportedly caught in the crossfire on Monday night when youth of the town clashed with soldiers who had arrested and handed over six persons to the police for engaging in illegal mining near the grave of the late P.V Obeng.

“Last night, the mother of one of my friends was beaten and she has been hospitalized; my father is a pastor at the Methodist church, they beat him up till he forgot that he was a priest so he threw away his bible and rained curses on them. If my father doesn’t make it to heaven, those soldier would be blamed”, one of the youth told Angel FM in an interview.

He said, “my father is called Shadrach Ato Mensah; he is a Methodist priest so he was returning from church when he was caught in the middle of the scatter; they have beaten him mercilessly forcing him to invoke dreaded curses on them”.

The youth pelted stones at the soldiers in demand for the release of the arrested illegal miners including an aspiring Assemblyman and an aspiring Unit Committee Chairman who had gone to the police station to seek bail for culprits.

A reinforcement of fifty two (52) armed military men who stormed the town around 10pm Monday night spared nobody they encountered and unleashed brutal beatings and slaps on even the innocent in retaliation.

Here Is The Reason Why Judges Destroy Their Pen In Court After Passing A Death Sentence

Correction is the major reason for making arrests or apprehending criminals, but it is quite unfortunate that some of these corrections means bringing the life of the offender to a stop.

This is particular with cases of Murder or treasonable offenses.

The death sentence is carried out in order to deter other citizens from treading the same path.

Many of us have not wondered how life would look like for judges who pronounce death penalty of law breakers.

They have been charged with that responsibility by the state, however it is not as straight forward for them as it seems.

It is so hard on them that they nib the pen used in passing such judgements.

We might not have realized this, but the pen is usually destroyed in the court room and it has an incredible significance.

This act means that the judge does not want that particular pen to be used for another judgement.

This is because of the fact that the very act of ending someone’s life no matter how grievous the person’s crime might be is so unholy that the pen is destroyed right after to indicate remorse.
