A scrupulous ritualist is in the web of the Awutu Ofaakor District Police Command for allegedly killing his client at Kasoa in the Central Region of Ghana.

Myjoyonline reports that the Mallam, Sulemana Mumuni Tanko allegedly poisoned the deceased Anita Walters in a hotel room and took to his heals with a whooping sum of $10,000.

The District Police Commander, DSP Samuel Amfoh speaking in an interview with Kofi Adjei on Adom News said the mallam was contacted by the deceased who was an accountant with Power Hydraulic Company on Thursday, November 5.

Listen to the interview below:

According to the police, the deceased, Anita had gone to seek spiritual assistance from the 35-year-old mallam after the management of her place of work suspected that she had embezzled funds.

DSP Amfoh added that the suspect upon realizing that his client had wads of cash in her bag poisoned her and subsequently hit her with metal from an exhaust pipe until she died.

The mallam then stole the $10,000 and fled until he was arrested by the Police.
