Peter Ofori, a 20-year old school drop-out has butchered his over 80 year old grandmother Obaapanin Ama Agyei at a cottage called Tuam, no 1 near New Edubiase.
The New Edubiase Police Command arrested him from his hideout in Koforidua where he fled to after the incident and he has confessed to the heinous act.
Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Asenso Duah, said:
Upon reaching the cottage after receiving intelligence, we realized that the woman was 80 years and above was lying in a pool of blood with cutlass wounds at the back of her neck. He confessed that a fetish priest who performed some rituals told him that his destiny was exchanged when he visited the shrine, he also told us that he had been having nightmares and so accused the grandmother of being behind this. He therefore killed her when the rest of the family had gone for a Parent and Teacher Association (PTA) meeting.’
