Famous Fiagbede Atsu, a 37-year-old carpenter by profession and an evangelist residing at Kuotokrom new site in the Sunyani Municipality is in police custody for suspicion of murder.

The deceased, Kofi Baah, 41, and a mason was allegedly murdered by the suspect around 10:30 pm on Wednesday at Kuotokrom new site, Elder Stephen Fosu, a brother-in-law of the deceased told the police on Thursday.

Elder Fosu said Atsu, an indigene of Mepe in the North Tongu District of the Volta Region is a street preacher and also operates a prayer camp at the Kuotokrom new site, adding “I heard about the shocking incident around 0100 hours on Thursday”.

He appealed to the Police “to act quickly in the investigation process for justice to prevail”.

Some individuals living within the locality of Atsu who anonymously spoke to the media said the suspect claimed he was attacked by the deceased whilst on his way to collect money from a friend who owned him.

They alleged Atsu who was holding a hand-saw and a wooden object admitted killing Baah in a reactionary process of self-defence and dumped him into the gutter.

According to them, Atsu, with bloodstains on him went to the Sunyani Municipal Police Command in the company of his landlady at about 11 pm hours on Wednesday to report the incident.

The Sunyani Municipal Police Command when contacted confirmed the case and added the body of the deceased had been deposited at the Sunyani Regional Hospital morgue pending investigation.
