A man believed to be in his mid-50s, Fred Mensah has reportedly beheaded a 70 year old man at Hohoe in the Volta Region on Tuesday.
The deceased was on his way to his farm when he was met by Fred Mensah who without any provocation stopped him, took his cutlass from him and cut off his head and two hands.
After the dastardly act, the suspect who is mentally challenged paraded the town with the severed head and hands which he was arrested by the youth of the town.
A resident, Tony Srah who spoke to Kasapa News reported that the timely intervention by the police saved the suspect from being lynched by the angry residents.
The police subsequently conveyed the body to the Hohoe Government Hospital, while the suspect is currently behind bars at the Hohoe Police Station.
The police have since commenced investigations into the matter.
