“The suspects while at Bajjo, strangled and stabbed the victim five times on the head and three times on the right hand,
bundled him in the trunk of his vehicle registration number: UAY 765 H Toyota Premio white in colour,”Owoyesigyire reports.

“As they were driving the vehicle away hastily, it got stuck and they had to call people around to help push it back on road.
The people saw blood seeping from the car trunk and when people asked them what they were carrying, the suspects didn’t give clear answers,”

“On opening the car trunk, the body was discovered and immediately mob attacked the suspects injuring one while two escaped in the confusion (a man and a woman). Police is hunting for the suspects, the vehicle was also damaged in process of the mob action,”he added.
