Meanwhile, the Cape Coast Circuit Court 2 has remanded the suspects, Tufuhene of Ekumfi Akwakrom Nana Clark Onyaa and a pastor Michael Darko known popularly as Nana 1 for the murder.
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 GHS15,000 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.
