Two key suspects have been arrested by the Kumasi Police for murdering a final year student of Effiduase Senior High Commercial School (EFFISCO) in the Ashanti Region.
The suspects arrested were 22-year old and Emmanuel Otu, alias Linking, and 20–year old Emmanuel Agyekum, also known as Essien.
The two who went into hiding after they committed the crime in September.
According to them, they have always been having sleepless night ever since they killed their victim.
Superintendent Asare Bediako who is the Effiduase District Commander in an interview told Nhyira FM the two in their caution statement to police indicated they were being haunted by ghost of the of the former Business student of EFFISCO they allegedly killed.
“We [police] don’t believe in spiritualism but according to them, they were always haunted by the ghost of the young man [ Derrick Agyei]. They wanted to go out of the country but the man was asking them to come back and hand themselves to the police. That’s what we had from them,” Supt. Asare Bediako.
He added: “This cannot be considered in court but it’s a way of telling a story, we can say that maybe the ghost played a role because, from their own mouths, they said it that they wanted to run away but they were always under pressure from the ghost of the deceased to come and report themselves.”
