Twenty-five (25) year-old Okada rider, Dovi Tsidi is in the grips of the Battor Aveyime Police Command in the Volta Region for allegedly beheading a 12-year-old boy.
The incident happened around 9 p.m. on Sunday 29th August, 2021 at Mafi Aflokofe in the Central Tongu District of the Volta Region. Dovi Tsidi was later seen with the head of the boy.
The Assembly Member for the Mafi Dove Electoral , Moses Awukuvi speaking to First News said, “An eyewitness saw the Okada rider in the company of the boy because they live in the same house. He actually took the deceased from Mafi Dove and crossed the creek Mlagoe to Aflokofe, where he allegedly committed the crime. He initially got the boy drowned to ensure the boy becomes weak before murdering him.”
Mr Awukuvi noted that the community members of Mafi Dove and Mafi Aflokofe later got the wing of the issue and traced up only to find the boy dead and dumped underwater weeds in the creek at Mlagoe.
“The alleged perpetrator went and hid himself with one Prophetess Flora Ekpe, who is believed to be associated with the crime. The culprits have since been arrested by Battor Aveyime Police Command.”
