Man Beheads Mother And Butchers 5 At Assin Akrofuom


Unimaginable bizarre things keep evolving in the world of everyday. It has been a pool of policemen at the Assin Akrofuom area where a man has reportedly butchered about 5 people including his mother at their house.

The suspect who is an ex-convict is said to have slain four of his relatives , and two other neighbors. Miraculously, a six-year-old boy, survived the gory attack and is currently on admission at a hospital. Shocking enough, the deceased relatives were his mother, father, brother and sister.

The motive behind this gruesome attack has not been made known at the moment as nobody has been able to explain why he has butchered the victims. More so, the killer suspect was said to have been captured by neighbors and killed immediately.

According to The Divisional Crime Officer for Assin Fosu, DSP John Coffie, the police got to know about the incident on Thursday evening.

”We had a call that somebody had killed his mother, father, sister and nephew near Assin Akrofuom. We went to the scene and we found an elderly man who had been beheaded and then a young lady who had also been butchered just by her father,’ he said.

The Killer had butchered his land lord and his son but the six-year-old son of the land lord was lucky to have survived as it was only hurt on his left arm. This was discovered when the police had taken the bodies to the morgue only to find out the boy was still alive.

“We conveyed the bodies to the morgue and at the hospital we learnt that the young boy was alive. So it was only the left arm that was hurt and he has been admitted at the hospital,” he added.

However, the 35-year-old killer was hunted down and killed by a mob before the police got to him. It was reported that some residents flushed him out from his hiding place in a nearby village as he was trying to escape.

Some reports speculate that the killer was not mentally sound. But that is all it is at the moment.
