The suspect will be handed to the Criminal Investigations Department Headquarters in Accra.


But, the family of the deceased, reacting to the news of the arrest to Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsen host, Kwesi Asempa, said they were yet to receive any official notice from the police.

An uncle of the deceased, Samed Akalilu, said if indeed another arrest has been made, they wish there would be an opportunity for the family to know who the fetish priestess really is.

“We have not received any official statement from the police but we have also heard the news of her arrest yesterday.

He said the family was determined to see the case being pursued to its logical conclusion hence believe the opportunity will definitely present itself for them to physically see the suspect in court.
