On September 15, a body was discovered in a small grave in the Napogbakole residential neighborhood behind the blue hill hotel area.
The body is believed to be that of a security guard who had been attacked and kidnapped on September 15 from a carpentry business along the Wa Technical Institute road.
Authorities suspect the 49-year-old male is from the Wa neighborhood of Kpongu.
Officials from the Ghana Police Service have unearthed the body in order to conduct more investigations into the case and perhaps identify the offenders.
There have been a total of 9 kidnappings in the Wa Municipality, with 5 resulting in death.
Consequently, police presence has been increased.
