The two are believed to have stolen gas cylinders from a house at Outta City near Gold house, a suburb of Kasoa.
They were reportedly beaten and subsequently burnt by angry residents after an alarm was raised.
Starr News’ Eric Anokye Boakye Yiadom who reported from the scene said the remains of the deceased are yet to be collected from the area where the action took place.
Kasoa has in recent times seen a sharp rise in crime especially robbery. The Police have subsequently scaled up their surveillance of the area.
