A 40-year-old woman suspected of killing and secretly burying her Canadian boyfriend, who came to Ghana on a visit, has been arrested by the police.

Although the body has not yet been found, Natasha Bawah, a trader and hairdresser, is alleged to have taken the presumed dead Eddie Murphy Sulemana to the Upper East Region where he was killed.

The suspect claimed that Sulemana, a Muslim, died at the Tumu Government Hospital while receiving treatment for a fatal accident in the Upper East Region, and was buried by the Muslim community.

However, checks by the police neither yielded any records of Sulemana either at the hospital nor from the Muslim community that supposedly buried him.

Briefing journalists in Accra yesterday, the Accra Regional Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Mr Christian Tetteh Yohuno, said in September 2014, Sulemana came on holidays in Ghana where he met Natasha.

Trip to Upper East

He said the two became lovers and resided at Sowutuom in Accra.

In the course of the relationship, Mr Yohuno said, Natasha led the victim to Sandema in the Upper East Region for a cattle business.

Since that trip, Mr Yohuno said, the family of Sulemana had not set eyes on or heard anything from their relative.

He said when the family tried to contact him by phone, Natasha picked the phone and told the family that Sulemana had been involved in an accident and did not want any family member to visit him.

After sometime, he said Sulemana’s phone went off and Natasha was nowhere to be found.

Arrest

The family lodged a complaint with the police and Mr Yohuno said preliminary investigations revealed that Sulemana had not returned to Canada and that his travelling documents were with his friend, known as Mallam Mumuni.

On August 1, 2015, he said Natasha was traced to her hideout at Buokrom in Kumasi and was arrested.

Upon interrogation, she told the police that Sulemana died at the Tumu Government Hospital while receiving treatment from a fatal accident on the Tumu stretch of the road.

Natasha also claimed that Sulemana was buried on January 24, 2015, per Islamic customs at a Muslim cemetery in Tumu.

However, according to Mr Yohuno, when the Tumu Government Hospital and the Muslim community in Tumu were contacted, no records of death involving Sulemana as claimed by Natasha were found.

He said Natasha would be put before court while investigations continued.
