The Tufohene of Ekumfi Akwakrom, Nana Crack, has been arrested by the Ghana Police over the gruesome killing of aspiring trainee nurse Georgina Asor Botchwey.
The Central Regional Police Command apprehended him barely 24 hours after the arrest of his alleged accomplice on Tuesday, September 20.
Nana Crack's arrest follows the confession of a self-styled pastor who was complicit in the heinous killing of Botchwey. The deceased was found buried in one of his uncompleted rooms of the chief in Mankessim in the Central Region.
Discovering the body of the victim
The preacher led investigators to the chief's room, where the body of Botchwey was exhumed. The remains of the victim have been deposited at the mortuary of the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital for autopsy.

How social media reacted to the news of the chief's arrest
Things you have to do off camera. Beatings galore then say he resisted arrest, so you had to apply force. His matter no sweet, so no one will believe him now.
His name is Nana, but Are you sure he is a Chief?
They should scan all the floors of the room in the house. Trust me, this killing is not his first.
How can you be this wicked? Ah. SMH.
Assembly Member of the Area Speaks
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh reported that the Assembly Member of the area, Cephas Arthur, urged the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to beef up security in Mankessim and its environs.
