The relatives called his phone after their search for him proved futile. When they called an unknown fellow picked up, claiming he had George in his custody; indicating he had him slain with his corpse in his possession.

The person who answered the call allegedly said his name was Lucifer.

This is causing panic among residents of the town. Meanwhile, women have demanded the whereabouts of Akorli.

Although similar incidents have occurred in the past, mostly as a result of the decades-old land dispute between the Alavanyo traditional area and that of Nkonya, expectations are that such cases are treated as crimes committed by individuals.

The Kpando Police Command said it is conducting investigations into the matter.

The SASADU Festival, which is a rotational festival celebrated among the four Traditional Areas of Saviefe, Akrofu, Sovie and Alavanyo to mark their migration from the Ewes’ ancestral home in Notsie, Togo, was hosted this year by the Alavanyo Traditional Area over the weekend.
