Picture of Jesus christ

Man arrested for beating ‘Jesus Christ’
It was disgusting to residents of Asankragwa in
the Western Region, particularly members of the
Catholic faith in the area, to watch on last
Friday, April 14, 2017 when the church was
performing ‘Stations of the Cross.’

Stations of the Cross, which is an essential
doctrine of Catholism, is a 14-step devotion that
commemorates Jesus Christ’s last day on earth as a

The spiritual exercise is performed on ‘Good
Friday’ every year by members of the Catholic
Church where someone is made to replicate Jesus
Christ on earth as the ‘Saviour’ of the world.

But to members of a vigilante group called “Top
10” at Asankrangwa, it was an occasion for them to
take their pound of flesh of ‘Jesus Christ’
because 2000 years ago they were not in Galilee to
take part in the beatings of Jesus Christ.

Narrating the incident to Weekend Today, a member
of Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic, Stephen
Amoah, explained that the followers (members of
the Catholic Church) of ‘Jesus Christ’ had
travelled through the first to the tenth Station
where it was believed that Jesus Christ was
stripped off his garments and shared among the

He said on reaching the 10th Station at a place
called Cudjoe Abrosan Ase, Kweku Merci, who is in
the grips of the police and his notorious ‘Top 10’
gang, rushed on ‘Jesus,’ and hit him with a club.

That, according to Stephen Amoah, infuriated the
‘soldiers’ of the drama troupe who did not take
kindly with the vigilante group.

Tempers however, subsided when the church
intervened to enable them complete all the 14

Immediately after the spiritual exercise members
of the vigilante group regrouped and went on
man-hunting for the ‘soldiers.’

Luck however, eluded one of the ‘soldiers,’ Adams,
who was hit with a huge club, tearing one of his
neck ligaments.

Kwaku Merci was later arrested by the Asankrangwa

Meanwhile, the leader of the group, Kwame Seth, in
an interview with Weekend Today, said on that
fateful day, a member of the gang lost his mother
so they were in a sorrowful mood and were drunk,
when they came into contact with the members of
the Catholic Church, who were performing their
spiritual duties.
