Central Region Police are investigating the circumstances in which a Level 300 student from the Technical University of Cape Coast was killed on Friday night at OLA Estate in Cape Coast.
Nana Ama Clark’s body was found in a pool of blood without her private part.
Police said they received reports around 9:00 p.m. Friday that an adult woman had been found dead by the roadside at OLA Estate near the OLA College of Education in Cape Coast.
According to the police, they went to the scene and found the body of an unknown person, approximately 24 years old, lying naked with her private part “vagina” cut off and bruises on the body.
The incident has shocked locals, who are calling on the police to ensure the perpetrators are apprehended and dealt with.
Residents dismissed previous suggestions that it could have been a getaway driver who knocked the 24-year-old out. Even before police conclude their investigations, residents say the circumstantial evidence does not support an accident but a carefully orchestrated scheme.
Residents of OLA Estate are also calling on the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly to fix malfunctioning lamp posts in the area.
The entire OLA-Bakaano stretch, where the incident took place, is in complete darkness, and locals believe that the darkness that shrouds the area at night encourages people to commit such crimes.
Nana Ama Clark’s body has been deposited in the morgue at Cape Coast University Hospital pending further investigation.
In the meantime, the police have contacted the mother of the deceased and investigations are ongoing.
