The Ghana Police Service has arrested a self-claimed prophetess allegedly linked to the murder of a 12-year-old boy, Kofi Kuzagbe Tsidi at Mafi Dove in the Central Tongu District, of the Volta Region.
Flora Ekpe was picked up by the Sogakofe Divisional Police Command after the main suspect in the case, Emmanuel Tsidi Doe, 26, alleged he was sent by her to bring a human head for ritual purposes.
Both suspects are currently at the Sogakofe Divisional Police Command, assisting with investigations into the incident.
The deceased was allegedly beheaded by Dovi Tsidi, who happens to be a relative to the deceased at Mafi Aflokofe on Sunday at 9:00 pm.
Speaking to an Accra-based radio station, Citi FM, the Assembly Member for the Mafi Dove electoral area, Mr. Moses Awukuvi, said, the deceased was drowned to ensure that he became weak before he was killed.
“The suspect after noticing the community was after him, hid the body of the deceased under the creeks and bolted with the head to a maize farm where he hid the head under some leaves”, he stated.
He added that the suspect “went into hiding at a prayer camp where he was with a prophetess, Flora Ekpe, who is believed to be associated with the crime”.
