The Mampong Municipal Police Command, led by Supt. Stephen Boadu have arrested four persons in connection with the murder of 33-year-old Akosua Nyantakyiwaa Acheampong at Kyirimfaso last Friday.
The four suspects include the brother of the murdered woman. They are Yaw Sarpong, Kwaku Opoku, Inusah Yakubu-mallam and Kofi Sarpong.
According to the Police, the victim was lured by her brother, Yaw Sarpong and Inusah Yakubu to escort them to a place so a cleansing can be done for her to avert all bad luck in her life. The victim was taken to an unknown location where the other suspects murdered her.
The mother of the deceased and Yaw Sarpong later lodged a complaint at the Police station about their missing relative.
The Police said investigations led to the arrest of Yaw Sarpong who was heard by his mother making a call at night, telling the other suspects to go and pick the sick person at the location.
Upon further interrogation, Yaw Sarpong confessed that he actually contracted Kofi Boateng alias Blessing, a ritualist to do money rituals for him.
The confession of the brother of the deceased led to the arrest of the ritualist and his apprentice, Kwaku Opoku who also confessed that Yaw Sarpong hired their service to do a money ritual for him.
The ritualist also mentioned one Inusah Yakubu, a mallam he asked to help him with the money ritual task for Yaw Sarpong which he agreed.
Upon arrest, the mallam also confessed to the offence and also confessed to have been involved in murdering the 33-year-old woman.
