A Fulani herdsman has butchered a woman to death at Mafia-Agoe a rural community in the Central Togo district in the Volta Region of Ghana.
According to a Starr FM report, the woman is in her late 50s and was killed by a young Fulani herdsman who is in his late 20s early Wednesday dawn.
The report added that the young herdsman is a customer of the deceased who is known as Efya.
An eye witness William Adzigo speaking to Starr News said they were woken by a sharp alarm raised by the deceased inlaw.
“It was about 2:00 am last night when we heard the grand-daughter screaming that somebody was killing the grandmother. We all rushed out but the door was locked from inside and so we forced it open but the first person that rushed into the room was also attacked by the victim and so he also sustained deep machete cuts on his head,” William said.
William added that: “We called the police who got to the scene and entered the room to arrest the suspect, a known Fulani herdsman in the area but that time, the woman was already dead and so the after whisking away the suspect came for the body.”
The second victim according to the report is receiving medical treatment at the Adidome government hospital while the suspect is in the grips of the police assisting investigation.
