A farm keeper has allegedly murdered his landlord in Yaw Anane, a rural town in the Bia West District of the Western North Region.
Yaw Wotoro, the suspect, has been identified.
According to the information available, Yaw Wotoro sliced the landowner’s neck, Kwasi Antoh, 60.
Rainbow Radio’s Emmanuel Sowah, reporting from the scene, said the two battled after the suspect accused Mr. Antoh of having an affair with his daughter.
The two battled and were separated, according to him, but it is unknown what prompted the suspect to allegedly attack and kill Mr. Antoh.
The farm owner died instantly, according to him, after the suspect slit his neck with a cutlass.
It has also been revealed that the farm owner had complained that the caretaker was not doing his job properly, which led to a misunderstanding.
Yaw Wotoro got a cutlass and slashed his landlord’s neck in the back of his house before fleeing.
However, some residents of the town conducted a thorough search and eventually found the offender, caught him, and gave him over to the police.
