Police probe murder of 15-year-old SHS girl

The Ejisu Divisional Police Command has commenced investigations into the murder of a 15-year-old Senior High School (SHS) student at Ejisu Gyamasi in the Ejisu Municipality of the Ashanti region.

Divisional Police Commander, ACP Stephen Tane Ngissah, told Kumasi FM's Elisha Adarkwah that no arrest has been made yet but one person has been cited.

Linda Akansa was found dead on Friday, June 21 2019 in a bush near an uncompleted building in the community with her remains decomposing.

Her sandals were found about 5 metres away from the crime scene with part of her hair shaved.

The Juabeng SHS 2 student got missing for a week during her school's short vacation.

Unit committee chairman for the area, Asonaba Kwaku Amoah told Kumasi FM's Elisha Adarkwah that the deceased had struggled with her captors looking at the crime scene.

ACP Ngissah said Linda's murder is the second case recorded in about two years in the community.

He said the command is making every effort to get the murderers arrested.

ACP Ngissah, therefore, pleaded with the general public who have any credible information about Akansa's murderers to inform the police.
