Two persons including a 28-year-old Level 200 student of the University of Education were killed on the spot while others were severely injured last night in a lorry accident at Addo Nkwanta on the Suhum-Nankese road.

Emmanuel Kankam Manteaw and another victim were reported to be buying noodles popularly known as Indomie by the roadside when the unfortunate incident occurred.

The driver of the Toyota Camry with a DV number plate who run into the two killing them instantly abscond after hitting the two sensing they may not be alive.

Residents believe the crime was perpetrated by one Nana Dzakpata, a Fetish priest, who is allegedly involved in a get-rich-quick ritual locally referred to as 'sakawa'.

A resident of Addo Nkwanta, Maame Serwaa, who claim to have seen the said Dzakpata running away spoke with Joy News' Maxwell Kudekor.

Meanwhile, the Police are attributing the accident to a different person.
