After a 15-year-old schoolgirl was killed by unidentified assailants in the Assin South District of the Central Region, residents of Nsane near Ayaase have been left in shock and fear. The deceased, Priscila Ataa Botwey aka Atta Kakra, was discovered lying supine in a bush outside of the town, naked and with her head severed. She was found about three meters away from the body.
Her clothing covered the neck where it had been severed on the body, which was in a deteriorated state. The deceased, a Junior High School 1 student at Assin Jakai Basic School, reportedly lived with her grandparents in the same town and was five months pregnant. According to information acquired by Kasapa News Yaw Boagyan, the deceased was spotted arguing with her partner, Nana Yaw, a taxi driver stationed at Abura Dunkwa, about the pregnancy on March 8, 2023, at around 10 am.
The deceased’s body was discovered in a thicket with her head severed on Sunday, March 12, 2023 in the evening, after which the deceased and her partner were last seen in the town. Joseph Yankson, the deceased’s grandfather, had already informed the Nyankomase Ahenkuro police command about her missing granddaughter. But, a farmer named Kojo Boadi had informed the grandfather that when traveling to his property, he had noticed flies swarming around a specific area in a bush. When he looked around to see what was going on, he discovered a dead human body laying there.
He later went with him to the precise spot and discovered that the person in question was his granddaughter, who had been brutally murdered. A group of Nyankomase Ahenkuro police officers visited the scene of the crime and transported the body to the mortuary of the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital under the direction of Detective Lance Corporal Nii Armah Ashitey. Authorities have started an inquiry and have started looking for the deceased’s missing partner.
