A 35-year-old Ghanaian identified as Kpeyiri Neiba has reportedly murdered his Cousin who was said to have rejected his marriage proposal.

According to Graphic GH, the sad incident occurred at Uro-Mekaa near Kalba in the Sawla-Tuna Kalba District of the Savannah Region in Ghana.
The suspect, Kpeyiri Neiba, was arrested this week by the Sawla Divisional Police Command for the murder of Janet Ansaaku.

According to the police, during interrogation, the suspect confessed to the gruesome killing, stating that the deceased failed to marry him.
The Savannah Regional Police Public Relations Officer, Adjekum Owusu, who confirmed the incident to DAILY GUIDE, said on Thursday, May 27, one Martin Kojo Soyintey residing at Vongbe near Kalba called at Sawla charge office with a report that Neiba had murdered his cousin called Janet Ansaaku in the bush at Uro-Mekaa.
He said police accompanied by the complainant proceeded to the scene of the crime at Uro-Mekaa and found Janet lying in a pool of blood as a result of the cuts on her body.
The body was sent to the Sawla District Hospital and a postmortem was subsequently performed on the body before it was released to the bereaved family for burial.
The Sawla Tuna Kalba Police Command, bemoaned the incident adding that the murder of the deceased brings the number of murder cases involving women, by close relations in the enclave, to four within six months.
Inspector Owusu therefore appealed to the local chiefs and opinion leaders to team up with police to weed out crime from their communities.

Meanwhile, the suspect is still with the police for further investigation.
