Mankessim murder: Mother gives 'chilling' account of her daughter's death.
Maame Akua Anowa, the mother of the murdered lady who went for a nursing training interview in Ankaful in the Central Region, has described how her daughter, 22-year-old Asor, was murdered.
Ms. Georgina Asor Botchwey, a 22-year-old nurse trainee, was murdered and buried inside a traditional leader's kitchen in Mankessim.
The Mankessim Divisional Police Command, in collaboration with the Central Regional Police Command, arrested Nana Clark Onyaa and buried her inside his Mankessim kitchen.
Nana Onyaa, Tufuhene of Ekumfi Akwakrom, was nowhere to be found after learning that his accomplice, a pastor, had been arrested.
He was arrested, however, at his girlfriend's house on Ekumfi Akwakrom Hilltop.
Maame Akua Anowa told Atinka AM Drive host Kaakyire Ofori Ayim that her daughter left Yeji in Ghana's Bono East Region for the Ankaful Nursing Training in the Central Region to pursue a nursing education.
She revealed that after several days of not hearing from her daughter, she notified her eldest son, a military officer stationed in Takoradi.
Maame Akua Anowa added that the family resorted to a Facebook post after all phone calls to the deceased were unsuccessful.
She told Kaakyire Ofori Ayim that it took a guy from Yeji who was also at the interview to remind the family that Asor had told him that her sister's boyfriend was going to pick her up after the interview.
"Asor is a lively and bubbly person, so when the guy saw the Facebook posts announcing Asor's disappearance, he called his mom to tell her that Asor had informed him that her sister's boyfriend was picking her up after the interview." That's when my son tracked down the pastor and apprehended him at a bar. "He confessed right away," Maame Akua Anowa said to Kaakyire Ofori Ayim.
She confirmed that Nana Onyaa and the pastor, who also happens to be the boyfriend of the murdered student's sister, kidnapped the victim, raped her, and demanded GHS15,000 from her family as a ransom.
According to a police statement, the chief and the pastor murdered the woman and buried her in the chief's kitchen after the family failed to pay the amount.
