An Accra Circuit Court has issued an order for the arrest of two suspects involved in the alleged murder of a trader, Madam Alice Debrah. Azumah Agbeko, a 32-year-old fetish priest, and Bless Fia-Kwofie Kwablatsey, a 59-year-old driver, were originally before the court for allegedly kidnapping the victim. However, the prosecution withdrew the case after discovering that the suspects had murdered the 47-year-old woman after they kidnapped her.

The police have since exhumed the victim’s body and discovered where she was buried by Agbeko and Kwablatsey. The two suspects are now likely to be charged with conspiracy and murder instead of the initial conspiracy and kidnapping charges.

According to the prosecutor, investigations revealed that the deceased had discussed with Kwablatsey on how to improve her second-hand clothing business. As a result, Kwablatsey introduced her to Agbeko to help her with spiritual charms to gain more customers. The deceased then sent GHC1,500.00 to Agbeko’s mobile money account and a week later, Agbeko called her in the evening and arranged for them to meet.

On March 26, 2023, Madam Debrah traveled to the Volta Region to meet with Agbeko but never returned. Police intelligence led to the arrest of Agbeko, who mentioned Kwablatsey as his accomplice but denied meeting the deceased. Kwablatsey, on the other hand, admitted that he went with the deceased to meet Agbeko in March, and she subsequently sent money to the fetish priest.

The call logs of the deceased showed communications between her and the fetish priest, as well as the mobile money transaction of GHC1,500.00 she sent to him. For the most part, it is important to note that this case highlights the dangers of seeking spiritual help from unverified sources. It also emphasizes the need for caution when dealing with strangers, especially in business transactions. May justice be served for the deceased and her family.
