A Togolese national, Komi Konou has been arrested by the Police in Keta for allegedly asking a fetish priest at Abhor in the Volta Region to kill a Ghanaian domiciled in Cote d'Ivoire whom he owed money.
The suspect is a herbalist in Togo, who was said to have collected an amount of 500,000 CFA from the Ghanaian under the pretext of curing his ailing father.
However the suspect after collecting the money, failed to honour his side of the agreement which made the Ghanaian pursue him in demand for a refund of his money. This made Komi decide to hand over the victim to a fetish priest to be killed in order to stop him from demanding for his money.
Chief Superintendent Alex K. Wowolo, Commander of the Keta Divisional Police Command, who confirmed the arrest to DAILY GUIDE, explained that about two months ago, the victim approached the suspect to help him get herbal medicine to cure his father's ailment.
The suspect succeeded in collecting an amount of 500,000 CFA for the work but failed deliver and as a result, the victim started demanding for his money to be paid back to him amidst threats of reporting him to the police.
The suspect in sensing danger, promised the victim that he would take him to another place for the medicine to be prepared for him.
The suspect, Komi then paid 100,000 CFA, promising to pay the remaining balance when the work was completed, the police commander added.
Chief Superintendent Wowolo said on October 28, 2015 the suspect was asked to come to Aflao in the Volta Region where he was arrested by the police but denied the offense in his cautioned statements to the police.
Meanwhile, the police claim suspect, Komi Konou will be arraigned before court after investigations.
