Georgina Asor Botchwey, a 25-year-old student nurse at Cape Coast, was allegedly murdered and secretly buried by a chief and a paster in the chief’s home in Mankessim in the Central Region.
The motive behind the alleged kidnapping and murder of the nurse by the Chief, Nana Crack, who is also the President of the Mankessim Traders Association and the Tufohen of Ekumfi Akwakrom, is unknown.
According to reports, the two dug a pit in the chief’s newly constructed home and buried the nursing student in her last year.
After confessing to the crime to the police, the pastor was apprehended near Cape Coast, and the police then pursued him to the Chief’s residence.
Her bag, shoes, and other possessions were taken from the chief’s home along with the body.
Residents are in a state of shock and fear as a result of the tragedy.
The Assembly Member for the region, Hon. Cephas Authur, urged the Inspector General of Police to increase security in the Mankessim and its surroundings in an interview with the media.
He claims that this is the fifth occurrence of this kind of incident in Mankessim this year.
The Assemblyman demanded that the chief and the paster be prosecuted and, in the event that they are proven guilty, harshly punished by the law to serve as a deterrence to others who have such nefarious objectives.
The victim’s body has been placed in the mortuary of the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital for preservation and autopsy.
