Two killed in ethnic clashes In Central Region

Two people have killed in ethnic clashes between Ewe and Fantse communities at Akumfi in the Central Region.

The clashes ensued after a 60-year-old Fantse man, Nana Eguase, was killed and buried on his farm.

Joy FM’s Central Regional Correspondent, Richard Kojo Nyarko reported that the man’s head was completely severed and the headless body buried.

The correspondent added that members of deceased’s community, launched a search for him believing he had gotten missing but not suspecting that he had been killed. The search party discovered headless body of the deceased buried in his coconut plantation with parts of his legs stuck out of the grave.

The Municipal Chief Executive of Mfantseman East and Chairman of the Municipal Security committee (MUSEC), Henry Kweku Hayfron, told Joy News in an interview that members of the Fantse community attacked the Ewe community upon suspicion that some of them might have perpetrated the crime.

“There were gunshots, one is dead and three people have been injured,” the MCE said, adding that “now there is some normalcy but we are still investigating.”

Richard Kojo Nyarko added that the body of the elderly man has been deposited at the regional hospital mortuary.

The police have mounted a search for his severed head and the culprits. The body of a 40-year-old man – Kojo Munka – who died during the clashes has also been deposited at the same hospital.

Meanwhile, three persons who sustained gunshot injuries are also receiving treatment at the Saltpond hospital.
