Murdered Americans not involved in land dispute – Lawyer

The Lawyer for the two African-American ladies who were murdered at Akwamu has denied reports linking their death to a land dispute in the area.

Police in Akosombo found the bodies of the two African Americans buried by some unknown assailants. The US embassy has confirmed the deaths.

The two bodies were found after a search team found a pool of blood and a blood-stained cudgel in their room.

Sampson Lardi Ayenini, who is lawyer for an entity set up by the murdered Americans, said allegations of his clients being involved in land disputes are untrue.

“They settled in the area and were given large tracts of lands for which they own and have been doing developments on the lands, they don’t sell lands”, Ayenini told host of Morning Starr Kafui Dey Thursday on Starr 103.5FM.

Meanwhile, Police in the area have mounted a search for the murderers.

Akosombo Divisional Commander, ACP Bosompem has stated that a burial site had been found Wednesday morning and they were waiting for officials from the CID headquarters in Accra to help with investigations.
