Two persons alleged to have stolen two goats at Madina, a suburb of Nkwanta have been paraded through the community.
The action, taken by the residents, was to act as a deterrent to others.
The two suspects, Yakubu Mohammed, 21 years, and Rashid Alhassan, 26 years were booed and scorned by the community members.
According to reports, the two were arrested by residents led by Alidu Suraj Musah, the Zongo Youth Chief.
To prevent a possible lynching of the suspects, they thought doing that will calm the nerves of residents and also give the Police the opportunity to do their work.
