A mentally deranged man has butchered six family members to death this morning at Assin Akrofrom in the Central Region. The family members included his parents and other relatives. He is said to be middle aged.
He normally come home from time to time to see his parents and sibblings.
Yesterday evenin, however, Akwasi Ganu came from the bush with two well sharpened cutlasses and started attacking everybody on sight.
He killed his father, Mr Ganu; mother, Abena Ganu; his two siblings, ages ten and two years.
He then entered another room which was being occupied by their landlord and son. The landlord was then helping his son to do his ‘home work’. He killed the two of them too.
The land lord also died instantly with the head and one hand chopped off completely. The son was rushed to the Assin Foso hospital but was pronounced dead afterwards making six.
He took to his heels but the people in the town mobilized themselves, went after him and lynched him.
They managed to get him alive but he later died when they brought him home around 23:30 GMT.
