Residents of Bonakye, a suburb of the Nkwanta South Municipality in the Oti Region have been thrown into a state of apprehension following the alleged murder of the District Pastor of Narrow Gate Faith Ministry in charge of Bonakye, on his farm by an unknown assailants.
The deceased, Pastor Bless Denutsi, a 50-year-old man, was found lifeless on his farm few meters away from the Bonakye town in a supine position with blood oozing from his nose and ears believing that he was hit by sticks by his assailants.

The leaders of the Church together with some members of the community then went in search of him but found the Pastor dead.
A team of Police officers from the Nkwanta South Municipal Command led by Detective Lance Corporal Kumi Seidu, visited the crime scene this morning and conveyed the body to the Nkwanta South Municipal morgue awaiting autopsy.
Superintendent of Police, Mr Lawson Lartey, Nkwanta South Municipal Police Commander said the Police suspected a foul play, have began investigations into the death of the Man of God and assured that the culprits would be brought to book.
