Sampson Lardi Ayenini, Lawyer for the two expats who were brutally murdered at Akwamu in Akosombo in the Eastern Region has refuted reports that his clients were involved in a land dispute.

According to him, the said allegations of his clients being involved in land disputes are untrue.

Speaking in an interview on Starr FM, he said, “They settled in the area and were given large tracts of lands for which they own and have been doing developments on the lands, they don’t sell lands.”

The victims were earlier reported to have gone missing and a search in their room Tuesday afternoon purportedly revealed blood stains on the floor; and a blood-stained cudgel, believed to have been used to hit them, was also found.

The paramount chief of the Akwamu Traditional Area, Odeneho Kwafo Akoto II, on Wednesday dispatched over 70 people to complement a police search for the two missing persons.

There were suspicions among residents that the two murdered persons – a 75-year-old lady identified only as Mamlena and 60-year-old Nzinga – were kidnapped and murdered.

A search party was organised which found a shallow grave in which the two had been buried.

The bodies were subsequently exhumed, under the supervision of health professionals, and deposited at the Police Hospital mortuary in Accra.

Meanwhile, the Akosombo Divisional Commander, ACP Bosompem, said his outfit detected a burial site on Wednesday morning and that they were waiting for officials from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) headquarters in Accra to come and help with investigation.

He said, they have begun investigations into the murder of two American citizens.
