The police command in Kuntenase in the Ashanti Region has picked up one Rashid Ibrahim for the cold-blooded murder of Israel Agyei Manu, headteacher of Rogel Montessori Basic School at Atonsu Kumasi and owner/driver of the Bolt service Toyota Vitz vehicle with registration number GE 3170-21.
The suspect, who, according to a statement by the police, initially “gave an untenable alibi”, later “confessed to committing the crime” and led the police to retrieve the machete which he allegedly used to behead the deceased at Feyiase New Site on Sunday, 4th July 2021.
The suspect is in police custody pending arraignment.
The police commended the community members, who volunteered their observation of movement of neighbours and strangers alike, leading to the arrest.
The police assured them of the “strictest confidentiality and appeals to such informants to desist from blowing their own cover by bragging about such exploits”.
