The preacher led investigators to the residence of Tufohene of Ekumfi Akwakrom, Nana Crack, and exhumed the remains of the deceased from his room, where she had allegedly been buried for the past three weeks.
The pastor is in the custody of the police in Mankessim after he confessed to aiding the chief in kidnapping, killing, and secretly burying Botchwey in the chief's room.
Chief on the run
The chief, who doubles as president of the Mankessim Traders Association, is on the run.
Speaking on the grisly incident, the Assembly Member of the area, Cephas Arthur, urged the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to beef up security in Mankessim and its environs.

He divulged that Botchwey's death adds to more than four such cases only this year.
''This is the fifth occurrence of this kind of incident this year. I’m requesting that the police take care of the Chief and Pastor,'' he said.
The decomposing remains of the victim have been deposited at the mortuary of the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital for autopsy.
Correcting confusing reports
In a phone interview with YEN.com.gh, social media influencer James Annor Tetteh, popularly known as Nana Tea, disclosed that Botchwey was yet to gain admission into nursing school before death.
Several reports had labelled the deceased as a nursing trainee student, but the social media influencer debunked the reports.
''She is not a nurse; she's now entering the school. She just bought the form for the interview. [The media got it wrong],'' he told YEN.com.gh.
