Residents of Abrepo in the Ashanti Region have been thrown into a state of shock after two middle-aged women were found dead in the area.
The bodies were said to have been found near a stream in the early hours of Thursday by some students who were on their way to school.
The residents suspect the ladies were killed elsewhere and dumped in the area as none of the bodies is known to them.
The two bodies were left in the same state with their skirts pulled to their knees and their blouses to their necks, exposing their nakedness
and blood oozing from her mouths.
The Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, Elizabeth Agyeman, who has visited the scene of the bodies has thanked the residents for their roles in discovering the bodies.
“I commend the police service in this area and everyone because discovering these bodies wouldn’t have been possible without your help,” she told Adom News in an interview.

“I want to urge the youth, especially the females, to be mindful of their movement. The sweat you see on my face is not because of tiredness but the pain of motherhood I’m feeling right now,” she said.
It is not immediately clear if the ladies, one fair and the other dark in complexion, were raped by their assailants prior to their deaths.
The Apredehene Kyeame of Otumfuo, Nana Kofi Nti Kakra has offered libation for purification of the area after which the police took the bodies for further examination and investigation.
Nana Kofi Nti Kakra has bemoaned the rise in insecurity in the area, expressing the hope that the gods of the land would aid in exposing the perpetrators of the crimes.
