A Ghanaian prophetess, Mrs. Rose Boafo Ampofo has been beheaded by unknown persons at Akyempim, a suburb of Tarkwa in the Western Region, Ghana.
The prophetess was murdered by unknown assailants at about 4:00 pm at the premises of her church, Word of Knowledge Church.
The Western Regional Police Public Relations Officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Ms. Olivia Ewuraabena Adiku told Graphic Online that the police are hunting for the perpetrators.
She said Mrs. Boafo, aged about 37 years, was murdered in a small apartment attached to the church building which she used for a one-on-one consultation with members who wish to discuss issues privately.
“At the scene, the victim’s body had part of her neck slashed with several cuts and stabbed multiple times in the abdomen.” The body has since been deposited at the Tarkwa Government Hospital, she said.
“At present we are looking for the perpetrators and will also appeal to members of the general public to volunteer information to the police to help in the apprehension of the perpetrators,” she said.
The husband of the prophetess was said to have started a search for his wife only for them to find him lying dead in a pool of blood with her head been cut off.
