Sefwi Bekwai Killings: “The Evildoers are within us” Krontihene fumes

The Krontihene of Sefwi Bekwai Traditional Council, Nana Kwadwo Twum II, has stated that the perpetrators following the ritual murders in the area live within the land, and under any circumstance, one can depart from that fact. 

Nana Kwadwo Twum II, who doubles as Chief of Sefwi Humjibre, said it is an undeniable fact that the land of Sefwi Bekwai has suffered a great deal of humiliation for the past four decades or more with the unfortunate stigmatization of Ritual Murder.

His speech is a result of the murder of 27-year-old Martha Tetteh, a resident of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region who was alleged to have travelled to Sefwi Bekwai on June 27, 2022, to consult a spiritualist but met her untimely death.

In a press release dated August 8, 2022, The Krontihene of Sefwi Bekwai Traditional Council, Nana Kwadwo Twum II, said “We admit that the people are with us, we would not under any circumstance run away from this fact, of course, we take it or we leave it, there could be instances where non-citizens of the land may get involved, but such individuals are able to succeed because it seems, the tree that produces the core elements is deep-rooted in our soil,”

“It is for this reason Nananom have been trying as much as possible to work hand in hand with the security agencies over the period to fight at all times without a foot off the accelerator to uproot any suspected ‘POISONOUS TREE’ with the likelihood and potency to producing such dubious individuals in our traditional area. As indicated, with the help of the Almighty God and the various spirits of the land we have enjoyed some quiet time until now”

Though, it is almost impossible to look a man or a woman in the face and say you are suspected of so and so act, but it is on record that, Nananom over the years have carefully been able to boldly ask some individuals suspected to be of like manner to leave the land, thanks Nananom who have been supportive enough in exposing such bad characters. This approach has so far proved to be a useful weapon in our fight against ritual murders on our land,”

“Today, ritual murder is mentioned in our land and the list of suspects arrested by the police, unfortunately, has a so-called ‘Chief’ a certain SANAAHENE in our palace’s name. What a shame! What a pity!! What an indictment!!!” Nana Kwadwo Twum II added.

The Krontihene of Sefwi Bekwai Traditional Council, Nana Kwadwo Twum II, called on the council, the security and the civilians to fight against the evildoers tarnishing the image of Sefwi Bekwai.

“Again, irrespective of our current differences, we could still work in diverse ways in collaboration with the security agencies in ensuring that all those who played various roles in the ritual murder are made to face the full rigours of the law in a manner that will deter any such distasteful, preposterous and inhuman acts in the future. This is not beyond us,”

“It is also my humble prayer to the good people of Sefwi Bekwai to support authorities in this fight to get to the bottom of the matter by giving out any information whatsoever we may have in respect of the case to ensure that a lasting solution is found so that our security could be guaranteed. It may also go a long way in restoring our dented image as a people,”

However, the Sefwi Wiawso Magistrate court presided over by His worship Lawrence Buernor has remanded four persons into Police custody for allegedly murdering Martha Tetteh, a 27-year-old woman at Sefwi Bekwai in June 2022. The accused persons are expected to reappear before the court on August 19, 2022.
