The police has arrested a 43-year-old Burkinabe man residing in Ghana on suspicion of murder.
The suspect is alleged to have murdered his German girlfriend and her 13-year-old daughter.
The incident occurred at Kokrobite in Accra.
The Burkinabe is alleged to have buried his girlfriend and her daughter after killing them at their residence.
According to neighbours, the Burkinabe and his girlfriend and daughter, until their disappearance, had been living together since January 2020.
However, a foul stench in the vicinity coupled with the sudden disappearance of the suspect’s girlfriend and her daughter, raised suspicions in the neighbourhood, prompting the locals to report the incident to the police.
The Burkinabe later led the police to where he buried the bodies.
Meanwhile, an exhumation order from the court for the bodies and autopsy is being executed by the police.
Investigations have also commenced into the matter.
