Police investigate alleged rape, murder of woman at Anwiankwanta

 The Ashanti South Regional Police Command has commenced inves­tigations into the alleged rape and murder of a 22-year-old woman at Anwiankwanta, in the Asante Bekwai Municipality.

The deceased, Abenaa Georgi­na, an apprentice seamstress, was said to have been conveyed by some unknown people in a vehicle to be taken to her home, but was found dead.

After her family realised that she had not been in the house throughout the night, a search party was organised on Sunday morning and her body was discov­ered in an uncompleted building near her home.

Eyewitnesses said Georgina was partially undressed, leading to suspicion that she might have been sexually assaulted before her death.

A police source told the Ghana News Agency that police were investigating circumstances leading to her mysterious death to bring perpetrators of the crime to book.

Mr Frank Awuah, Assembly Member for the Anwiankwanta Electoral Area, told the GNA that the police had assured the family and the people in the community of thorough investigations, and called on anyone who had infor­mation on the death, to assist the police.

The mysterious death of the woman has thrown the community into a state of shock.

Residents of Anwiankwanta have called on the police to put in place stringent measures to curb the wave of mysterious deaths in the town.

It would be recalled that a sev­en-year-old boy was also murdered recently in the community by an unknown assailant. —GNA
