Photos: Woman, 55, beheaded at Seketia


Fear has gripped residents of Seketia, a farming community in the Jaman North District of the Brong Ahafo Region, following the beheading of a 55-year-old woman by unknown assailants.

The woman, who was identified by some residents as Maame Ama Kyereboah, had gone to her farm for foodstuffs on Thursday afternoon where she was gruesomely murdered.

Some residents revealed that the dead body wasn’t mutilated apart from her head.

Samuel Sakyi, the Assembly member for Seketia/Korase, recounted that the unfortunate act was the first of its kind since the community was established.

“I was at the farm when I received a call that someone had been beheaded so I should come home”. He said.

He said the news had saddened the entire community and that “even men were afraid to go to their farms”. He added.

Meanwhile, ASP Vitus Napen, Jaman North police commander, says they are yet to begin their investigations.

The mortal remains of the deceased have been deposited at the Sampa Government Hospital morgue for autopsy.
