Properties destroyed during land dispute between Borea Ahenfie and Bakando Kokombas
At the time of going missing, the chief had organized a communal labour for some community members to harvest yam mouse since it’s in season.
However, there were reports of gunshots emanating from the bushes they were working on, hence the intervention of the police and military.
Upon searching, the lifeless bodies of the chief, his son and his linguist were discovered in separate locations.
The konkombas have been intimidating the NCHUNBRUNGS because they claim they have the men in government as no one can stop them.
The OTI REGIONAL MINISTER and the Defence minister are all konkombas.
Eyewitnesses noted that, Kokombas gang, who laid ambush and attacked the chief at his farm unexpected, dragged the deceased person and butchered him with cutlass
Following the assassination, the hoodlums stormed the community to destroy 16 houses and burnt other property belonging to the residents.
The NCHUNBRUNG community is therefore calling on the IGP Dr Akuffo Dampare to investigate and bring the perpetrators to book. The konkombas have a track record of violence and they are always prepared for tribal war.
Meanwhile, the bodies of the deceased have been deposited at the Krachi Municipal Hospital morgue pending autopsy.
