A 47-year-old teacher of Assin Dosii D/A Basic School in the Assin South District of the Central Region, John Obeng has allegedly been killed by his nephew, suspect Benedict Yaw Bimpong.
Information gathered by Rich Fm and Angel Fm/TV reporter Kwame Owusu Asante Shadrack revealed that the deceased was attacked in his room by the suspect in an attempt to steal from him.
“In the course of their struggle, the suspect punched his (deceased) face and the deceased fell on floor”.
Confirming the incident, the chief of Assin Dosii, Nana Darkoh, said the deceased who was bleeding profusely was rushed to Assin Jakai health center for medication but was later pronounced dead.
He noted that “the deceased has been a victim of the suspect’s chronic theft and burglary. In this view, the deceased decided not to keep his salary in his room but in his pocket”, hence, the action by the nephew.
Meanwhile, the suspect has been arrested by the Nyankomase Ahenkro Police command from his hideout whilst the body of the deceased has since been sent to the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital for autopsy and investigation.
The Chief, Nana Darkoh, therefore, appealed for a police station in the area to fight criminal activities in the area.
According to him, the Nyankomase Ahenkro police station which they depend on during cases of emergency is quite a distance away.
