Mankessim murder: Suspect pastor sold victim to accomplice

More details are emerging concerning the murder of a 22-year-old lady, Georgina Asor Botchwey, at Mankessim in the Central Region.

Two suspects have since been arrested in connection with the murder of the deceased, whose body has been exhumed from the house of one of the suspects.

The two suspects are Michael Darko Amponsah, a self-styled pastor who is also a fiancé of the deceased’s sister and a local chief, Nana Onyaa Clark.

According to the new revelation related to the case, the would-be-in-law of the deceased sold her off to the chief to be used for rituals.

The family of Georgina became alarmed after their daughter went missing days after she left Yeji to attend an admission interview at Ankarful Nursing Training College in Cape Coast.

Georgina, after her interview, was reportedly picked up by her sister’s fiancé, who resides at Mankessim.

Her family, following her disappearance, tracked down Michael Darko Amponsah to a village where he had gone into hiding.

He confessed to selling off the deceased to Nana Clark.

The deceased’s body was later exhumed from the local chief’s house at Adumadze in Mankessim.

Nana Clark was subsequently arrested and arraigned together with Michael Amponsah. The two have been charged with two counts, namely: conspiracy to commit crime, to wit murder and murder, contrary to section 46 of the Criminal Offenses Act 1960, Act 29.

The Cape Coast District Court II remanded them into custody to reappear on October 4, 2022.
