A 28 year old fetish priest and two others have been remanded into police custody over an allegedly murdering of one Peter Tamakloe on July 11 2014 at Woe near Anloga.

According to The Ghanaian Times, the fetish priest, Kwaku Teteza, and his two accomplices, John Atitzie and Kofi Letsu, also known as Koffa, who allegedly conspired and murdered a 33-year-old welder at Anloga, have made their fourth appearance in court, charged with murder.

A fourth person, Agbenyega Agbavor Agboka, is on the run, and being sought by the police.

The usual heavy crowd at previous appearances was absent, as the January 21, sitting was not known by the public.

Chief Inspector Sampson Oduro, the prosecutor, prayed the court for more time to enable the police to apprehend the fourth accused person and the trial judge accepted and adjourned the case to February 18.

A report, according to the Anloga Police, was received from the Kwabenya Police in Accra on July 17, 2014 through Robert Tamakloe and Gideon Tamakloe that their brother, Peter Tamakloe, the deceased, aged 33, and residing at Dome Kwabenya in Accra, travelled to Woe, their hometown, near Anloga on July 11, 2014 but did not reach his destination.

That same day, information reached the Anloga police in the Keta municipality that the deceased, on his arrival, was seen in the company of a fetish priest at Afatome, a suburb of Anloga.

Chief Inspector Oduro said the police traced and got to the fetish priest’s house but he was not available and a search was conducted there but yielded no results.

Information gathered, at about 10:30 p.m., revealed that someone had been buried in a grave dug by Koffa, an errand boy of the accused in an uncompleted building, on July 9, 2014.

The police mounted surveillance and on July18, visited the scene and discovered that a body had been buried there.

An exhumation order was obtained from the district coroner and when the body was exhumed, was found to be a male, partially decomposed and identified by the complainants as Peter Tamakloe.

Chief Inspector Oduro said the neck was pierced with a sharp object, the face blind-folded with a black scarf and the mouth gagged with a red scarf, and both hands tied behind and the legs also, with a cord.

The body was conveyed to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Accra, for autopsy.

Investigations established that Kwaku Tetezah, Koffa, Agbenyegah Abavor and John Aftitzie, an intimate friend of the deceased, introduced him to the convict and they all conspired and murdered him.

Based on this information, John Aftitzie was arrested at Kwabenya near Accra last August, and sent to Anloga for investigations.

Koffa was arrested at the Tetteh Quarshie Round- about in Accra, while Teleza was arrested in Nigeria, with Agbenyega still on the run.
