Police in Nyankumasi-Ahenkro in Asin South district have launched a comprehensive investigation into the alleged murder of a 15-year-old pregnant schoolgirl.

The farming community was in a state of shock and disbelief at the news of the suspected murder of a five-month pregnant girl known as “Ata Kakra”, identified as Priscilla Ata Botwe.

The deceased, a JHS A student at Asin-Jakai Basic School, had been missing for five days and was found on Monday, lying naked and head down in a bush about three meters away from the body .
The deceased was living with her grandparents in the same town.

Detective Lance Corporal NI Armah Ashite, who led a team in the village, said the deceased was seen arguing with her boyfriend, Nana Yaw, a taxi driver, over the paternity of the pregnancy last Wednesday.

The girl and her boyfriend have not been seen in the community since the incident.

Detective Ashite said the grandfather of the deceased, Mr Joseph Yankson, reported the matter to the Nyankumasi Ahenkro police after efforts to trace the girl proved futile.

Later, the detective said, Mr. Kojo Bodi, a farmer and resident of the town, informed the police that he saw flies hovering around a spot on the way to the farm and only saw the body in the bush.

Police were immediately mobilized and went to the scene and took the body to the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital mortuary for post-mortem, pending further investigation.

The police have appealed to the people to maintain peace and have stepped up efforts to arrest the criminals.
