The main suspect in the murder of a 33-year-old headteacher of Atonsu-based Rogel Montesorri Basic School says he was motivated by the quest to get rich to commit that heinous crime.
Thirty-two-year-old Rashid Ibrahim was arrested on Sunday after the decapitated body of the late Israel Agyei Manu was discovered at Feyiase New site.
He confessed to police investigators he acted on assurances of some people he consulted to bring a human head for money ritual.
“Yesterday (Sunday) after the incident, we had a tip-off that he was the one behind the killing of this gentleman so we quickly apprehended him. Initially, he denied the incident; he denied it that he was the one behind it and pleaded alibi.
During further interviews and questioning, he broke down and actually confessed, adding that he perpetrated the crime alone,” ASP Godwin Ahianyo, Public Relations Officer of Ashanti Regional Police Command revealed.
Rashid had earlier denied his involvement but later led police to retrieve a machete he used to butcher the deceased.
