His comment comes in the wake of calls by various interest groups seeking justice for a nurse at the Sewua Health Centre, who was allegedly murdered at Ayoum in the Bosomtwi District.
Speaking to Nana Ampratwum after Tuesday's Town Hall Meeting and Results Fair in Kumasi, Baffour Amankwatia VI called on the government to urgently tackle the seeming insecurity in the region.
“We are all witnesses to the fact that some mysterious murders have been going on in the Ashanti Region for the past three months. So far as I am concerned, the police who are responsible for our security haven’t talked about it.''
''Those of us in Kumasi have realised that nothing is being done about this. So we have assumed that they are not doing anything about it. These mysterious deaths in Kumasi involve ladies. The police should be up and doing on this matter''
Ruth, a mother of three, was found dead at a secluded area close to her Ayoum new site residence in the Bosomtwe District of Ashanti on Tuesday, February 4, 2020.
She was said to have left the house on Monday, February 3, 2020, and did not return.
This recent incident aside from other notable unsolved killings in the region prompted the Traditional Leader to make a passionate call on the security agencies to act swiftly to bring perpetrators to book.
