Mankessim murder case:Accused persons allegedly confess to killing two more people.

Hundreds of people were there on Thursday to see the Tufuhen of Mankessim, Christopher Ekow Quansah, and Michael Darko, the self-proclaimed preacher accused of killing Georgina Asor Botchwey.

A police team had transported the two suspects to Tufohen's house for further questioning after they had been detained near the Mankessim Lorry Station and the Pacific Fuel Station, where they had reportedly admitted to the murders of three additional victims. In the middle of traffic, people stopped to watch the two who have become notorious as onlookers hooted and swore at them.

According to the GNA's source, the two suspects led the police team to the locations where a male and two women had been killed on Thursday afternoon. The witness said that the accused initially took the group to the Tufohen's house in Mankessim before taking them to the nearby village of Akwakrom to perpetrate the atrocities. The rooms were searched thoroughly, and the police took away evidence to use in their investigation.Back in Mankessim, the pair are accused of luring a male instructor to a location where he was shot and killed instantly, and then leading the police to the scene. The police were sent there, and it was said that a female merchant was shot and buried alive under a bridge in the Ekumfi District. The team was called to Batanya, in the Abura-Asebu-Kwamakese District, for another homicide investigation. A young woman from Kumasi, Ghana, was the victim.It appears that the two posed as travel agents and forged travel paperwork in order to convince her to visit Holland. The two suspects are said to have admitted to killing the woman after meeting her near Batanyaa on the Cape Coast-Assin Fosu Highway. The relatives of the deceased were present at the morgue in Cape Coast on Thursday afternoon, and they positively identified the corpse.

A special squad of police officers from the Central Regional Command, under the supervision of the accused, seized a 26-year-old mason in Mankessim in connection with the suspected murder.
