The Police in the Bono Regional town of Wenchi is investigating the circumstances that led to the death of Adamu Wahab, well known as Adamu Soldier.
The lifeless body of the well-known farmer was found on his farm at Wenchi on Monday under some bizarre circumstances.
The deceased was said to have left home on Monday in the morning to visit his farm but did not return on time, so his wife told their head who organised a search party which eventually led to his body being found on the farm.
The spokesperson for the Wahab family, Yaroba Wahab, said the family suspected foul play in the murder of Adamu Soldier since he had told the family about a land dispute between him and some people.
“We do not want the violent incidents that occurred at Ejira and Tamale to happen in Wenchi here too so the Wahab family will want to urge the police to make sure justice prevailed,” Mr. Wahab stated.
Meanwhile, irate Wenchi Zongo youth have burnt the residence and destroyed the washing bay of a businessman whom they suspect to have masterminded the killing of Adamu Soldier.
The Wenchi Police have successfully brought an easy calm situation but are yet to comment on the issue.
The late Adamu Soldier, 55, left behind a wife and 8 children.
