V/R: Police arrests seven suspects for alleged murder of 12-year-old boy

Police in Agortime-Ziope District, in collaboration with the Volta Regional Police Command, have arrested some seven suspects over the murder of a 12-year-old boy, Cornelius Negble in Nornyikpo, a village near Ziope.

The suspects have been in their hideouts since the incident happened in May, barely two weeks after the Police retrieved the decomposed body of the young man in fetish priest’s shrine.

The suspects were arrested afterwards.

Other suspects who had escaped into the republic of Togo, have also been arrested by the Interpol.

All the seven suspects have made first appearance at the Agortime-Ziope District Magistrate Court.

They are expected to re-appear on 5 July 2021.
