A young man has reportedly beheaded a 70-year-old man at Hohoe in the Volta Region on Tuesday.
The suspect, Fred Mensah was said to have met the old man on his way to the farm and butchered him without any provocation.
He chopped off the head and hands of the old man who was working on his farm.
After the dastardly act, the suspect who is said to be mentally challenged paraded the town with the severed head and hands following which he was arrested by the youth of the town who called in the police.
Eben Salifu, a resident, who spoke to Adom News’ Kofi Adjei said the timely intervention by the police saved the suspect from being lynched by the angry residents.
