Some five suspects have turned themselves in to the local police at the East Gonja Municipality of the Savanna Region over the killing of a 90-year-old woman.
This comes barely 24 hrs after the arrest of the chief of Kafaba for his alleged role in the gruesome murder of Akua Denteh.
Reports say the 5 turned themselves in purposely to ask for the release of their chief.
Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police has dispatched a team of experts to the Savannah Region to help with investigations.
The incident happened on Thursday, July 23, 2020 in the East Gonja Municipality. Madam Akua Denteh was beaten to death in public for allegedly being a witch.
The old woman’s body has since been deposited at the Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH) mortuary.
