Cape Coast court remands chief, pastor who allegedly killed student nurse


The Cape Coast Circuit Court 2 has remanded the Tufuhene of Ekumfi Akwakrom Nana Clark Onyaa and a pastor Michael Darko known popularly as Nana 1 in police custody for their involvement in the alleged murder of a 25-year-old trainee nurse, Georgina Asor Botchwey.

The Mankessim District Police Command on Wednesday, 21 September 2022, arrested the chief at his hide out at Akwakrom in the Ekumfi district after his accomplice, the pastor, confessed to helping him kidnap, kill, and secretly bury the victim.

The victim was allegedly kidnapped by the pastor after she had gone for an interview at the Ankaful Nursing Training College.

The culprits after having had sex with their victim demanded GH¢15,000 as ransom from her family for her freedom.

They allegedly killed her when the family refused to pay and buried her in the chief’s kitchen.
