KOFI GYASI aka ‘Taller’ has been arrested by the police in connection with the brutal murder of his seven-month-old pregnant girlfriend Akosua Mansah, 32, which occurred at Pakyi Number One about two months ago.
Taller reportedly rushed to his church recently and informed the pastor that he was responsible for the killing of Mansah, asking the pastor to pray for him so that the nightmares he was having would stop.
Alarmed by Taller’s confession, the pastor, whose name was not immediately known, reportedly informed his church members who called the police to arrest the suspect.
The deceased, a resident of Nkwanta in the Ashanti Region, was found dead in an uncompleted building at Pakyi Number One on Saturday, July 21, 2012. Mansah’s throat had been slashed when her dead body was found by some workers working on the uncompleted building.
Taller reportedly started having nightmares after committing the heinous crime, forcing him to rush to the church for refuge, Samson K. Nyamekye of Hello FM disclosed to the paper.
The suspect, who could not sleep after allegedly committing the crime, reportedly told his pastor that he killed his pregnant girlfriend but he did not state what influenced him to do that.
Taller then asked that the church members pray for him so that the nightmare he was having, which started immediately he killed Mansah, would stop for him to enjoy life.
Mr. Nyamekeye, who had been following the case for the past two months, told DAILY GUIDE that the church members were shocked at Taller’s confession so they called the police to the church premises to arrest him.
The paper gathered that the police had since ferried the suspect to the Homicide Unit in Accra where he was being investigated.
