A 12-year-old boy at Mafi Dove in the Central Tongu District of the Volta Region has been beheaded.
The Battor-Aveyime Police Command has arrested a suspect in connection with the murder.
Twenty-six-year-old Dovi Tsidi is alleged to have decapitated Kofi Kuzagbe Tsidi on Sunday around 9:00 pm.
Also arrested was a self-styled prophetess.
The victim was allegedly drowned in a creek before being beheaded.
The suspect fled with the head of the boy to a maize farm and hid the body around the creek after realising that the community was after him.
The suspect later sought refuge at a prayer camp under the wings of one prophetess Flora Ekpe, who is suspected to be an accomplice.
