“Police accompanied by the complainant, proceeded to Wa Government Hospital and found a male adult aged about 30 years of Fulani extraction whose name was given as Adama Dauda, lying on a slab dead”.

“It could be that the two clashed over a Woman. So, we can’t rule out that aspect too.

Agaza, the suspect is not a farmer that we will say maybe, the deceased left his cattle to graze on his farm. But during this festive season, some of them do get drunk and would be misbehaving” ASP Adjei Degraft -Armah explained.

He bemoaned the level of insecurity in the area, adding that, “Yes, I know you can’t change certain mentality over night but this murder brings the number of such cases in the same enclave to three in three Months.
