Shocking: Mankessim chief, accomplice confess killing three more people

The Tufuhen of Mankessim and self-styled pastor Michael Darko, arrested for murdering a student nurse, one Ms. Georgina Asor Botchwey and secretly burying her in an uncompleted house in the Chief’s residence have made shocking confession about killing three more, a man and two women.

The news surprised many residents who had revered the Tufohen until his arrest for the heinous crime.

Hundreds of people on Thursday gathered in front of his house to catch a glimpse of him as he led the Police to the crime scene located just after the Pacific Fuel Station, near the Mankessim Lorry park for further investigations.

The crowd hooted at the suspects amid name calling and casting of aspersions as drivers in traffic temporarily stopped over.

A witness said the accused first took the Police investigators to the house of the Tufohen at Mankessim and Akwakrom near Mankessim, where they carried out their criminal activities.

The suspects reportedly took the police team to a location where they confessed shooting a male teacher to death and cut his toes for rituals.

The police were also taken to a location in the Ekumfi District where they allegedly shot and killed a female trader and buried her under a bridge in the Ekumfi District.

The team also visited a location at Batanya in the Abura-Asebu-Kwamakese District, where they allegedly killed a young lady from Kumasi.
According to Police sources, the two suspects pretended to be travel agents and had prepared a traveling document for her to travel to Holland. They allegedly met the lady at Batanyaa on the Cape Coast-Assin Fosu Highway and killed her.

The family of the deceased, who were at the mortuary in Cape Coast on Thursday afternoon, identified the body of their relative.

Meanwhile, a crack team of police personnel from the Central Regional Command were also led by the accused persons to arrest a 26-year-old mason in Mankessim, in connection with the alleged murder.

Earlier, the Chief of Akwakrom, Nana Akwa III, at a press conference, called for the arrest and inquiry into the activities of a fetish priest in the community and one Mr. Kwesi Gyan, the Abiradze Ebusuapayin of the Tufohen who could not be tracked since the news broke out.
