14 persons allegedly involved in the killing of a chief and two of his relatives in the Oti Region have been remanded by a court and scheduled to reappear on December 9.

The suspects were put before court on Tuesday after they were arrested the same day.

Police in the region with the support of their colleagues from Accra are also on a manhunt for other suspects involved in the crime.

According to the District Chief Executive for the Krachi Nchumuru District, Nkrumah Kwasi, the deceased chief, Nana Kwame Meebo had a disagreement with some members of a neighboring community over a piece of land but won the land litigation case at the Krachi West District Court.

The three were shot dead by unknown killers whilst they worked on the contentious land on Saturday.

District Chief Executive of Krachi Nchumuru and Chairman of DISEC, Nkrumah Kwasi Ogyile told JoyNews that a District Security Committee meeting has been held to, among others, discuss how to prevent possible counterattacks.

“The police are patrolling the district and they are pursuing the rest of the criminals who committed this act on Nana and his subjects. The security authorities are putting in place additional measures to ensure that those who have fled from the community to neighbouring communities, we will share intelligence with the neighbouring communities to enable them to pick them up and make them face the law.”
