An angry mob nearly lynched a suspected wizard to death but for the timely intervention of policemen from Tamale Metropolitan Police Headquarters. The man identified as Iddi Baba and his family was accused of killing a teacher with witchcraft.
 
Adom News reports that Iddi Baba, who had just returned from an exile after being forced to abandon his house following an alleged witchcraft that led to the death of one Abukari, a teacher of the Bishop Junior High School in the Choggu Manayili area of the Sagnerigu District of the Northern Region of Ghana, has just stepped foot in the area after almost one month before the sudden incident.
 
His three sons in an attempt to resist the angry mob inflicted cutlass wounds on Imoro Gundana, Majeed and Abukari, their cousins.
 
Iddi Baba is alleged to have been mentioned by the dying Abubakari as the cause of his death about three weeks ago. According to reports, Iddi Baba was mentioned by three different nephews of being the cause of the sicknesses that led to their deaths.
 
A complaint was lodged at the Gukpe-Naa Palace pending investigation following the death of Abubakari but Iddi Baba stormed the area Friday afternoon to the surprise of residents.
 
His arrival raised tension among residents, who began pelting stones as they massed up around his residence in disagreement of his return. The police, however, whisked him together with his family away while tenants were forced to evacuate the residence as the youth threatened to raze the house down.
 
The officers had to fire warning shots to disperse the teeming residents.
