The Mankessim Divisional police command in collaboration with the Central regional police command has arrested Nana Clark Onyaa, who allegedly connived with a pastor to kill a 25-year-old nurse trainee, Ms Georgina Asor Botchwey, and buried her inside the traditional leader's kitchen at Mankessim.

The Tufuhene of Ekumfi Akwakrom, Nana Onyaa, was nowhere to be found after he had information that his accomplice, a pastor, had been arrested.

He was, however, busted at his girlfriend's house at Ekumfi Akwakrom Hilltop.

Information gathered indicates that Nana Onyaa and the pastor, who doubles as the boyfriend of the murdered student's sister, first kidnapped the victim, raped her and demanded GHS15,000 as ransom from her family.

The police said after the family failed to pay the amount, the chief and the pastor killed the lady and buried her in the chief’s kitchen.

Speaking to Class News’ regional correspondent, Nana Tawiah, the Central regional crime officer, Chief Superintendent David Gyabaa, confirmed the arrest and said both suspects are in police custody.
