The Central Region Police have began investigations into the circumstances under which a level 300 student of the Cape Coast Technical University was murdered Friday night,May 13,2022 at OLA Estate in Cape Coast.
The deceased who was later identified as Nana Ama Clark by the police was found in a pool of blood without her private part.
According to the police they had information around 9:00pm on Friday that a female adult was found lying dead by the roadside at OLA Estate near the OLA College of Education in Cape Coast.
The police said, they proceeded to the scene and found the body of an unknown person aged about 24 years lying naked with her private part ‘vagina’ cut off and bruises on the body.
The incident has since shocked residents of the area, who have called on the Police to ensure the perpetrators are apprehended and dealt with.
The residents discounted earlier suggestions that it could have been a hit-and-run driver who knocked the 24-year-old to death. Even before the police conclude their investigations, the residents said the circumstantial evidence did not corroborate an accident but a carefully orchestrated scheme.
Speaking to the media the residents also called on the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly to fix the street lights that have malfunctioned in the area.
The entire OLA-Bakaano stretch, where the incident took place, is in total darkness, and the residents believe the darkness that envelopes the area at night emboldens people to commit such crimes.
The body of Nana Ama Clark has since been deposited at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital mortuary pending further investigation.
Meanwhile, the Police have contacted the mother of the deceased .
According to the Public Relations Officer of the Central Regional Police Command, DSP Irene Oppong, the mother of the deceased had been contacted.
