A 32-year-old unemployed man, Michael Agyare, has allegedly murdered his mother and a teenage house help in the Eastern Regional suburb of Suhum, Monday.

The deceased 59-year-old, Madam Doris, worked at the Suhum Government Hospital as a records officer while the house help,18-year old Mary Addo was a final year student at the Suhum Presbyterian Senior High School.

The Suhum District Police Commander DSP Yaaya confirmed the incident to Joy News and indicated that investigation is ongoing.

According to the landlord of the deceased Nana Kwadwo Dompreh, Mr Agyare had been quarreling with his mother over his intentions to get married.

According to the landlord, who is also a sub-chief at Suhum, the accused had been pressurising his mother to find him a wife.

Nana Dompreh said they have been lots of quarrels between Mr Agyare and his mother sometimes to the extent that he (the landlord) has to step in to separate them. 

He said Madam Doris, before the unfortunate incident, came to plead with him to let her only son come back to the house after he sacked Mr Agyare following a fierce quarrel with Madam Doris.

"I woke up this morning and the other people in the house were saying they have not heard from her, and her phone keeps ringing without anyone answering," Nana Dompreh narrated to Joy News. 

He said they went to the house help's school and she had not reported for school so they reported to the police. 

Shock gripped the household at Oforikrom after the police broke the door to find Madam Doris and the house help murdered in cold blood.

Mr Agyare is currently on the run, Joy News correspondent Maxwell Kudakor has reported.
