The other deceased persons were found in other rooms in Richard Appiah’s home.

Two of the deceased have been identified as 12-year-old Louis Agyemang Junior and Stephen Sarpong, aged 15.

The discoveries were made on Friday evening a little after 11:00pm.

The stepfather of one of the victims reported that Richard Appiah had taken his son to his house but had not returned.

He later effected a citizen’s arrest of Richard Appiah, with the help of his four brothers, according to a police report.

This then led to the discovery of the bodies at the surveyor’s home.

The bodies have since been sent to the Mentukwa private mortuary for preservation and autopsy.

The Acting Inspector-General of Police has also directed the Criminal Investigations Department Headquarters to provide technical support to the Bono Regional CID to investigate the killings.
