Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The Yamfo township in the Tano North District of the Brong-Ahafo Region
was thrown into a state of shock after a young man did the unthinkable
by cutting off the head of his own auntie over the weekend.

Salia Yakubu, 24, according to the police, ended the life of his auntie
only identified as Alimatu, 35, a mother of five, in the afternoon of
Saturday March 21 at a village called Koope, near Yamfo.

The Station Officer of the Yamfo Police Station, Chief Inspector Alex
Awuah Asamoah, who confirmed the incident to DAILY GUIDE, said the
police got wind of the bizarre incident around 12noon on Saturday.

He said they stormed the scene and conveyed both the deceased and the
suspect to the station and later transferred them to Duayaw Nkwanta,
where the body of the deceased was deposited at the St John of God
Hospital Morgue while the suspect was kept in police cells.

C/Insp Awuah Asamoah told DAILY GUIDE that the suspect confided in the
police during their preliminary interrogation that he did not know what
came over him to cause the heinous atrocity.

When asked whether the suspect was mentally sick, the police officer
indicated that they were yet to find out. He however said the suspect
showed no signs of mental illness.

Residents told DAILY GUIDE that the suspect had one time attempted to
kill his own father, but the father was rescued by his family people who
reported the action of the suspect to the police and he was arrested
and later released after a caution.

Explaining how the whole incident happened, residents told the paper
that the victim visited her family at the village who were then breaking
cocoa pods on their cocoa farm.

They said when the victim went to the hut to eat, the suspect pursued her there and killed her.
