Prophetess Murdered

Residents of Sowutoum London Hill in Accra,  woke up on Friday morning to the bizarre news of the murder of the 50-year-old prophetess.

Prophetess Agnes Agyei of the Grace Saviour Ministry at Lomnava, was shot in the right eye by two armed men at her residence.

Her son, Prince Oduro, 24, was also shot and he is currently responding to treatment at the Police Hospital.

A police source told The Ghanaian Times that they were not ruling out murder since there had been a case of land litigation between the deceased and some people, and said a chief and others would be invited to assist in investigations.

The Accra Regional Police Command Public Relations Officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Freeman Tettey, told The Ghanaian Times that at about 6am on July 25, the Prophetess’ husband, Kennedy Agyei Koomson, reported to the police that at about 1:30a.m., two armed men raided the house and shot his wife in the right eye and their son, Prince, in the ribs.

They bolted away with GH¢2,000 and four mobile phones.

DSP Tettey said immediately Agnes was shot, Mr. Koomson said he pretended to have also been hit by the gun and fell on the floor.

He said the armed men thought he was dead when they continuously kicked him, but he did not move and they abandoned them.

DSP Tettey said the victims were rushed to the Police Hospital where Agnes was pronounced dead on arrival. Prince was admitted and treated of gunshot wounds.

The body has been deposited at the Korle Bu Hospital mortuary.

He said the police proceeded to the house and investigations revealed that, the two armed men scaled the fence wall and entered the living room through the sliding window to the victim’s bedroom.

Empty shells of nine millimetres in size were retrieved from the scene.

Investigations are ongoing to unravel the mystery surrounding her death
