A young man, 25-years-old, believed to be a Sakawa boy has been arrested in the Central Tongu District of the Volta Region for allegedly beheading a 12-year-old boy for money ritual purposes.
The arrested was made by the Battor Aveyime Police Command of the Central Tongu District in the Volta Region.
According to the details gathered by OccupyGh.com, the unfortunate incident happened on Sunday night, 29th August 2021.
Unit Committee Chairman, Amos Alorse, said the sound of screaming drew their attention to the area.
Upon questioning, the suspect allegedly confessed to being sent by one prophetess, Floda Ekpe, to provide her with a human head for some rituals.
The suspect reportedly took the head of the 12-year-old to the prophetess, while dumping the rest of the body in a nearby waterbody.
Anxious residents traced the blood trails from the human head to the prayer camp of the prophetess and broke into the structure, where the suspect and the human head were found.
