Describing the dreadful incident, Ankobiahene Nana Amoateng Tuffuor explained that “we were at the palace yesterday and a young man believed to be in his late 30’s barged into the palace and complained that some people are chasing him because he complained that their goats have eaten his maize so I told him to proceed to the police station not knowing that he was actually the one who has committed murder”.

Nana Ankobiahene after describing the ordeal explained the complainant actually was the murderer.

“As a chief of this town, I have never seen or heard such news before. This is a taboo and we are considering to consult the gods and decide how to cleanse the land of such bloody heinous act that has befallen our land to avoid any catastrophe.”
