Some irate Zongo youth in Wenchi have set ablaze the residence and washing bay of a businessman, Nana Ameyaw, and a sub chief, accusing the two for allegedly masterminding the killing of one Adamu Wahab, popularly known as Adamu Soldier.

Soldier was said to have left home on Monday 12 July 2021 to visit his farm but did not return.

His wife raised an alarm and a search party later discovered the body of the 55-year-old man in a river near his farm.

The family said they suspect foul play following alleged land dispute between the deceased and the two, Nana Ameyaw and John Kofi Dekyi.

Briefing the media, the Wenchi Municipal Police Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police Eric Awudzivi, said the two are currently in police custody, adding a third suspect Alhassan Usman Opoku is on the run.

On his part, the Wenchi MCE, Dr Prince Kwakye Afriyie, is calling for calm while assuring the family the police will follow the case to its logical conclusion.
