The three suspects detained by the Agogo Police for allegedly slaughtering a 15-year-old boy at Nhyiaeso in the Ashanti Region’s Asante Akyem North Municipality have appeared in the Agogo Magistrate Court.
The herdsmen allegedly approached the adolescent along the riverbank, inflicting machete wounds on him, which resulted in his death. The attack’s motives are unknown at this time.
Three herdsmen were eventually caught and handed over to the Agogo Police by enraged neighbors.
Shaibu Osei, the Konongo Divisional Police Commander, told Citi News that the three suspects will face appropriate charges.
“Three suspects were initially apprehended by the indigenous people, but they were rescued by the police.” We have heeded their cautionary advice. When investigating a murder case, you must collect a large amount of evidence. So we’ll have to take them to court and ask the judge to remand them so we can complete our investigation. As a result, the three accused have been brought to trial.
Residents of Nhyiaeso, a farming town in the Ashanti Region’s Asante Akim North Municipality, are afraid of the 15-year-old boy’s death.
On Monday, January 17, 2022, a machete-wielding guy believed to be a cow herder slaughtered the deceased, David Anaara.
The deceased went to gather water from a brook near their property with his two younger siblings, but the two tiny boys escaped unharmed when the assailant attacked their brother.
Three cattle herders were prevented from being lynched after people accused them of being the perpetrators.
