V/R: 12-year-old boy beheaded; suspect arrested

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.
