According the Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), Inspector Gideon Ohene Boateng, the Gwollu District Police received a call from the Duwie Chief Palace that the suspect had been detained by the chief for alleged murder.

He said the suspect committed suicide by hanging, both bodies have been taken to the Wa Regional Hospital Morgue for preservation whilst investigation was ongoing.

Again, on Tuesday the Wa Circuit Court presided by Mr Braima Sydndy, remanded 37-year-old Hassan Ayariba into prison custody for allegedly killing a 35-year old businessman, Sule Santoro, at his shop at Dobile, a suburb of Wa.

Insp Boateng said the suspect allegedly stabbed the business man with an object, killing him instantly and bolted

He said the suspect was arrested a day after the police launched a search for him and was put before court.
