Residents of Eguafo community in the KEEA Municipality, woke up to a shocking news this morning. A man, believed to be in his 30’s by name Joe also known as OLA by many was found dead in a river without his manhood after butchering 4 people in the community.
The Uncle of the deceased (Joe), Mr. Kojo Ackah said, he was awakened by an announcement from the community’s information center calling for the search of the deceased who have entered the Bush. He assumed he went into the Bush on his own will, but he later found out that he (Joe) has butchered his brother (kojo Essoun) who he was sleeping with in the same room, then further went ahead to butcher a Prophetess( Maame Hannah) in the community, and also, Kofi Alansa and Kojo Blackie. “So it was during the search that we found his corpse in the river”, he added.
We were sleeping when we realized that “OLA” has broken into our room with a machete in his hand, so my mom got up and asked what the problem was. That’s when he started butchering her (Maame Hannah) on both hands. He then left and later we heard others has been butchered by him this morning.
Micheal Botsio, the assemblyman for Eguafo-Berman electoral area narrated that he (Joe) was once having mental problems, but it’s been long, so they’re all amazed at what has happened now.
The police has conveyed the body of Joe to the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital for autopsy.
One of the victims (kojo essoun), who is also a brother to “Joe” the deceased is reported dead this afternoon.
