THE CENTRAL Regional Police Command has arrested a 43-year-old charcoal burner and a father of 8 children, Emmanuel Awotwi aka Kojo Bob, for butchering his cousin, John Arthur aka Kwesikor, to death over an allegation that his cousin has used his penis for juju.
The body of Kwesikor has since been deposited at the Central Regional hospital mortuary for autopsy while the suspect is languishing in the hands of the police.
Briefing DAILY GUIDE, the Public Relations Officer for the Central Regional Police Command, Corporal Raymond Asaaba, said some residents of Wiamoa near the Cape Coast Polytechnic dragged Kojo Bob to the station on Thursday around 1:35pm to report that he had callously killed his brother.
Corporal Asaaba said a team of police officers was dispatched to the scene where they found the lifeless body of Kwesikor in his provision store which has an inscription ‘No Hurry In Life’ at Wiamoa.
He disclosed that during interrogation, suspect Kojo Bob admitted to killing his cousin, claiming the deceased had been worrying him spiritually.
According to Corporal Asaaba, the suspect said he had a dream and saw that his cousin had gone to a juju man to use his penis for rituals, and when he woke up, he decided to kill him.
He noted that suspect Kojo Bob seemed not to have regretted killing the cousin because he claimed he was a staunch Christian and worshipped at the Church of Christ.
The suspect also revealed that he neither took alcohol nor smoked wee and therefore nobody should accuse him of killing the cousin under the influence of any substance.
Sources close to the area hinted that Kojo Bob had not been on good terms with the cousin since he claimed he had taken his glory and that no one respected him in the community.
Kwesikor left behind 3 children and a wife.
