The DCE who made this known said he picked up intelligence from a source that a group of men and women were going to beat up the 58-year-old woman based on accusations that she has bewitched them and contributed to their failure in life.
Hon Lawal Tamimu moved into the area where the old lady identified as Pogogyir was and rescued her from the charged mob of young men and women who were ready to give the poor old lady the beating of her life.
The District Chief Executive used the opportunity to advise the charged youth calling on them to allow for the appropriate quarters to deal with such issues because the mob action is giving the region a bad name.
