Georgina Asor Botchwey, a final-year nursing student, was discovered dead and buried in the chamber of the Tufohene of Ekumfi Akwakrom in Mankessim, in the Central Region.
After a clergyman, who is reportedly complicit in the horrible conduct, confessed, investigators were directed to the room. In Mankessim in the Central Region, the pastor is currently being held captive by the police.
After confessing to helping a chief kidnap a 25-year-old nurse trainee and bury her in the chief’s room covertly, he was apprehended.
The pastor took the detectives to Nana Crack, the Tufohene of Ekumfi Akwakrom, on Tuesday, September 20, when Georgina Asor Botchwey’s lifeless bones were exhumed.
Reports say the two, after kidnapping her, may have had several bouts of sex with her and killed her.
She was, then, buried in one of the rooms of the chief, who is currently on the run.
The body is said to have been buried for the past three weeks. Residents have expressed fear about the incident, especially as it involves a chief.
The Assembly Member of the area, Cephas Arthur, called on the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to beef up security in Mankessim and its environs.
He said this is not the first time such an incident is happening in the area as it counts as Number 5 within this year.
He said the law must deal with the pastor and the chief if caught. The body of the victim has since been deposited at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital morgue for autopsy.
