In a renewed land dispute, the Chief of Borea Ahenfie, a farming community in the Krachi Nchumuru District of the Oti Region, and two others, including his son, were assassinated.
Residents believe the murder was motivated by a long-running land dispute between Borea Ahenfie Chief and Bakando residents, all of whom live in the Oti region’s Krachi Nchumuru district.
Nana Kwame Mebo ll, Chief of Borea Ahenfie and Nifahene of Chonkey Traditional Area was discovered dead in his farm after a joint military and police team was dispatched to the community after learning of the chief’s disappearance.
The chief had organized communal labor for some community members to raise yam mounds because it was in season at the time of his disappearance.
However, there were reports of gunshots coming from the bushes they were working on, prompting the police and military to intervene.
The chief, his brother, and his linguist were discovered dead in separate locations after a search.
According to eyewitnesses who spoke to Adom News’ Odehyeba Owusu Job, the gang who ambushed and overpowered them dragged the deceased people before murdering them.
Following the assassination, hoodlums stormed the community, destroying 16 houses and burning other residents’ property.
