Man allegedly kills boy 4-year boy to ‘gain spiritual freedom’
Police at Obuasi have arrested 21-year-old Emmanuel Adjei for
killing a four-year-old boy at Boete in the Obuasi East District
of the Ashanti Region.
The suspect claimed the deceased and his mother have been
tormenting his life spiritually for some time now, hence his
decision to end the life of the child to gain spiritual freedom.
According to reports, the development has thrown the Boete
Community into a state of shock and mourning.
The mother of the deceased, Obaa Yaa, said in the early hours
of Thursday 29th April 2021, she left home to buy porridge
for her son who was bathing.

with the child while she was passing.

boy was found under the bed of the suspect naked in a pool of blood.
Suspect Adjei, who was arrested by the police, has admitted
to the offense of committing murder.
The suspect claims the deceased and her mother had been tormenting
him spiritually, hence his decision to terminate the life of the innocent child.
