The Nyinahin District Pastor of the Church of the Lord of Alladura, Paul Kwadwo Abrefa, was on Monday night murdered by an unknown assailant.
The deceased, 50, and married with four children, had attended to nature’s call about 30 metres away from the church’s Mission House and on his way back, he was attacked.
His attacker suddenly emerged from the darkness and began stabbing him indiscriminately in the abdomen and chest amid his shrill cry for help.
Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Fredrick Asare Mensah, the Atwima-Mponua District Commander, confirmed the incident to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) and said it happened at about 1920 hours.
He said the assailant fled the scene before people in the neighbourhood could get there.
The pastor died on arrival at the Nyinahin Government Hospital and the body had since been deposited at the Toase Medical Centre’s mortuary for autopsy.
DSP Mensah said investigations are underway and vowed to do everything to arrest and bring the culprit to justice.
