Three persons including two women in the grips of the police for setting a man ablaze

The main suspect behind the murder of 39-year old Francis Dawson, who was murdered and burnt at Fiifi Pratt, a suburb of Gomoa, Nyanyano, has been arrested by the police.

The suspect, who had since relocated to Fetentaa, a suburb of Berekum in the Bono region, was picked along with two women.

Francis Dawson, 39, was picked up from his residence at dawn by some men claiming to be police officers.

His charred remains were later found at Fiifi Pratt, a suburb of Gomoa Nyanyano in the central region and identified by his wife, who said she had since trekked to all nearby police stations in search of him but to no avail.

According to the police, during interrogation, a main suspect named Michael Osei, nicknamed "Major," stated that he was tasked by one of the suspects, Rose Cobbah, to simply guide them to the victim's home.
