The Police in the Eastern region have arrested two persons in connection with the murder of two African American women.

The two were killed and buried in shallow graves at Akwamufie in the Eastern Region.

Deputy Regional Commander ACP James Azumah Abass said the two are assisting with investigations whilst the police are searching for more suspects.

The victims were earlier reported to have gone missing and a search in their room Tuesday afternoon purportedly revealed blood stains on the floor; and a blood-stained cudgel, believed to have been used to hit them, was also found.

The paramount chief of the Akwamu Traditional Area, Odeneho Kwafo Akoto II, on Wednesday dispatched over 70 people to complement a police search for the two missing persons.

There were suspicions among residents that the two murdered persons – a 75-year-old lady identified only as Mamlena and 60-year-old Nzinga – were kidnapped and murdered.

According to reports, the two, who were leaders of the African-American community in Akwamu, were recently accused by the Chieftaincy Minister, Dr. Henry Seidu Dannaa, of illegally acting as chiefs.

But lawyer for the two expats, Samson Lardy Ayenini, denied the reports saying that his clients were not involved in a land dispute.

According to him, the said allegations of his clients being involved in land disputes are untrue.
