“I moved in with the police and some community members. We went there and found the body without a head… They [the police] said we should make a thorough search for the head and we did so and found it a few meters away from the body”, Kwae said.
Police also retrieved a white Toyota Vitz vehicle with registration number GE 3170 – 21, from the scene –which has a chain of uncompleted buildings with poor security.
