22-year-old Georgina Asor Botchwey was allegedly killed and buried inside a traditional leader’s kitchen at Mankessim by Michael Darko and Nana Clark Onyaa.

The victim was allegedly kidnapped by the pastor after she had gone for an interview at the Ankaful Nursing Training College.

During police interrogation, Michael Darko, who is the alleged boyfriend of the senior sister of the deceased victim and was last seen with her, led police to the location where they had buried her after the murder.

The mother of the deceased has confirmed that Nana Onyaa and the pastor, who doubles as the boyfriend of the murdered student’s sister, first kidnapped the victim, raped her, and demanded GHS15,000 as ransom from her family.
