Speaking in an interview with Adom News, father of the deceased, Frank Ato Blady said his son went to lodge a complaint at the police station to demand the correction of the bank details which did not sit well with the suspect.


“My son reported the case to SCC police and the commander in- charge ordered Charles Blankson to refund his part of the savings to him but Charles refused to comply and threatened to deal with Ato Blady for disgracing him,” he said.

“Two months later, my son was kidnapped on his way to church only for us to find him dead with knife wounds all over his body and a medical report also revealed knives were inserted in his anus too. So we called for Blankson’s arrest because of his threats,” he narrated.

The suspect is in police custody assisting with investigations.
