A former winner of the 'Strongest Man' competition in Ghana, has been arrested for brutalizing two priests.
25-year-old Sanni Mohammed who won the 'strongest man in Ghana' competition in 2013, was arrested on Sunday, September 25, for brutally assaulting two Catholic priests.
According to Modern Ghana, Mohammed had repeatedly punched one of the priests identified as Father Anthony Awuah Boateng, in the face, while he reportedly stabbed Father Daniel Affum in the head for trying to intervene.
Mohammed was said to have fled the scene on his motorbike, but was later apprehended by the police on Monday, September 26.

This is what reportedly happened according to Modern Ghana:
“Father Awuah Boateng was traveling in his Toyota Corolla, registered AW 1722-13, at about 5:30 pm on Sunday from Bimso Number One and heading to Mankranso; and on the way he came across Mohammed. The accused was said to be displaying with a motorbike in a dangerous fashion right in the middle of the road and so the man of God reportedly bypassed him and left in peace.
The macho man then claimed that Father Awuah Boateng’s vehicle had hit his motorbike and so he gave the Catholic Father a wild chase with his motorbike in a Hollywood fashion. Mohammed finally caught up with Father Awuah Boateng at Adugyama, where he (suspect) smashed the tail light and side mirror of his vehicle in public.
Before Father Awuah Boateng could open his mouth, Mohammed, who was extremely angry, pounced on him with deadly blows, sending him to the ground. The suspect then followed Father Awuah Boateng to his residence where he continued hitting his already swollen face with countless hefty blows. Rev Father Affum then intervened by pleading with Mohammed to stop beating his colleague, but his apology rather ended in a bloody scene as the suspect allegedly stabbed him in the head with a knife.”
Confirming his arrest, the Ashanti Regional Police PRO, ASP Mohammed Yusif Tanko, said he has been transferred to the police headquarters in Kumasi.
Mohammed is currently being investigated for assault.
