Police in the Bole District of the Northern Region have arrested four persons in connection with the killing of a money doubler at Tinga.
Information available to DAILY GUIDE indicates that two of the suspects reported themselves at the police station.
The two other suspects were arrested upon a tipoff from some residents in the area who saw them in town.
District Police Commander ASP David Azumah who confirmed the arrest to DAILY GUIDE, said the suspects are currently in police custody.
According to him, the police had decided to withhold the names of the suspect for investigation purposes and so could not give out the names.
He stated that after police investigation, the suspects would be arraigned before the Bole court.
Reports suggested that the money doubler lodged in a hotel at Tinga, took GH¢500 and a cock from a young man in the guise of performing some rituals to double money for him.
After the person whose money was taken failed to get back his money in three days after several appeals, he allegedly mobilized his friends and went to the house of the money doubler, reportedly manhandled him and then reported him to a local vigilante group which had been mandated by the community to patrol Tinga, a small scale mining community noted for armed robbery and other social vices.
The vigilante group, according to ASP David Azumah, forcefully sent the money doubler to the caretaker chief of the Tinga community called Alhaji Ofori and after interrogating him (doubler), chief asked that he should be freed.
Later the following day, the body of the money doubler was found in the bush near Tinga.
The body has been deposited at the Bole Hospital for autopsy.
