According to, the attacker struck the deceased who is yet to be identified with an object in the head and then stabbed her in the abdomen.

The news website reports sources at Aposs-Okanta Prayer Center as saying a mentally unstable inmate at the prayer centre, now at large, is suspected to have committed the crime.

The woman reportedly met her untimely death in the house of one Elder Tetteh who is at the centre, the report said.

Officers from the Kyebi Divisional Police command have reportedly carried her remains to the morgue.

However, the Public Relations Officer of the Eastern Regional Police Command DSP Ebenezer Tetteh said his outfit had not received a briefing on the matter.

It is reported that the prayer centre in question is affiliated to the Church of Pentecost because its deceased founder was an Elder of the Church.

The camp has however been under litigation between two factions from the family over ownership, a matter which is said to be currently before Akyem Abuakwa traditional council for adjudication.
