A 60-year-old local Imam has been murdered in Konongo in the Ashanti region, the police said.
Police said the Imam was found dead Thursday dawn on his way for early morning prayers.
“The deceased is a local Chief Imam at a local mosque at Santeneso, an area at Konongo in the Ashanti region,” Konongo District commander Supt Gordon Opoku Koduah said.
“We’re investigating the case and in due course we’ll update the public. Autopsy has been carried out and the body has been released to the family,” he said.
The lifeless body of Tahiru Mohammed was discovered close to his residence with deep cutlass wounds on his right cheek and left arm.
The development has left his family in grief. He has since been buried according to Islamic tradition.
The incident happened the same day two female bodies were found dead at Abrepo in the same region.
