Another suspect has been picked up concerning the recent Wa serial killings in the Upper West Region.

The Concerned Youth of Siiriyiri reportedly apprehended the suspect.

This brings the number of people arrested to two.

Already, the police have arrested one person suspected to be key in the alleged serial killings in the municipality.

The first suspect, Kankani Adongo, was arrested on Monday, 19 September 2022, at Bamahu, a suburb of Wa, after an extensive search.

Adongo is currently in police custody and will be arraigned before the court to face justice.

The arrest follows a visit by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Dr. George Akufo-Dampare, to the Upper West Region to engage with stakeholders on the recent happenings in the area.

It would be recalled that residents hit the streets on Friday, 16 September 2022, over the recent murders, alleging that 10 security guards have been killed in the area since February 2022.

The residents massed up in front of the Wa Technical Institute to protest the security situation in the region.

They set car tyres ablaze to protest what they said was a poor security situation in Wa, which has resulted in the missing or death of the private security guards.

The body of the security guard, who was reported missing, was later exhumed in a shallow pit close to where he worked.

Meanwhile, the police have assured that they will continue maintaining law, order and security in the Wa Municipality and its environs.

It has since placed a GH₵100,000 bounty on the heads of the person(s) behind the recent Wa serial murders.

The police said they would reward anyone who assists with reliable information leading to the arrest of persons who caused the havoc.
