A 20-year-old man who dresses like a female has been lynched by unknown assailants, MyNewsGh.com reports.
According to Bolgatanga-based A1 radio, the young man from Zanlerigu in Nabdam district of the Upper East Region was found at the regional hospital morgue several weeks after he went missing.
Assemblyman for the Zanlerigu-Dagliga electoral area, Maxwell Divom who spoke to A1 Radio said “On the 3rd of January, it was reported at his father’s house that he was missing. So, we were looking for him, and later, on the 10th day of January, we heard that someone was allegedly killed at Kongo Nag-boug and so, the uncles went to the morgue to see the body and it was identified that it was him [Bugbil Roger Adaboo Toure].”
He indicated that when the body was found in Kongo in the Upper East Region, there were huge stones found around it; an indication that he was stoned to death by some persons.
“When the body was found, he was wearing a mini skirt and brassiere which portrayed a lady. Back in the community, he used to move with ladies, so, we don’t know why he was wearing a mini skirt and brassier”, the assemblyman disclosed further in an exclusive interview with Bolgatanga-based A1 Radio.
The Assemblyman further revealed that whose name is given as Bugbil Roger Adaboo Toure has been a target for a very long time because he is a cross-dresser.
“Yes, that is the talk in the community, that since they detected he was a guy [but] dressed that way, they thought that he was coming to steal or he was trying to deceive men that he was a female. Others even said he [late Bugbil Roger Adaboo Toure] ever did that on phone and some men thought he was a female and sent him credit. Even though that cannot be substantiated”, the Zanlerigu-Dagliga assemblyman is quoted by A1 Radio.
His family has since asked the Police to find the persons behind the death of their son.
