“I murdered Uber driver for money rituals”- Suspect confesses

The main suspect in the murder of a 33-year-old Headteacher of Atonsu-based Rogel Montesorri Basic School has confessed that he was motivated by the quest to get rich.

30-year-old Rashid Ibrahim was arrested on Sunday after the decapitated body of the late Israel Agyei Manu was discovered at Feyiase New site.

He confessed to police investigators that he acted on assurances of some people he consulted to bring a human head for money ritual.

The Public Relations Officer of Ashanti Regional Police Command, ASP Godwin Ahianyo speaking to the media said,“Yesterday after the incident, we had a tip-off that he was the one behind the killing of the gentleman so we quickly apprehended him. Initially, he denied the incident; he denied it that he was the one behind it and pleaded alibi.”

Rashid had earlier denied his involvement in the crime, but later led the police to retrieve the machete he used to butcher the driver whose services he sought as a driver with a ride-hailing application, Bolt.
