A man believed to be in his mid-20s has gruesomely beheaded his biological father, Kwaku Manu, at Assin Akrofuom in the Assin South District of the Central Region.
The timely intervention by the Central North Regional Police Command Patrol team saved the suspect, Richard Manu also known as Azonto from being lynched by angry Youth for his crime.
The suspect is presently receiving treatment at the St. Francis Xavier Hospital in Assin Fosu under police guard.
Information gathered by Kasapa News Yaw Boagyan indicates the suspect earlier accused his father (deceased) of exchanging his destiny for his elder brother following a visit to a spiritualist.
The situation, he said has aided his brother in becoming rich at his expense.
