A team of Kokomba warriors and hunters at Dambai Old Town in the Oti region have shot dead two male antelopes they believed killed a woman gathering mangoes on the farm.

The warriors believed the animal was lurking in the vicinity of the accident and was likely to attack another person hence the search to kill exercise sanctioned by Nana Ubor Gmafudal II, Chief of Kokomba at Dambai.

Madam Bejome Jacha, 48, was head-butted by the wild antelopes on Wednesday leading to injuries and subsequent death at the Hohoe Municipal hospital the next day.

Briefing the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on behalf of the team, Mr Jacha Jagri, the husband of the deceased said the team set off late Friday night after the necessary rituals accorded such events and returned at 0700 hours on Saturday with two male antelopes.

He said true to their suspicion, the first animal was shot within the precincts of the accident with the second one being killed within a spate of one hour difference.

He said the carcass would undergo specific rituals to appease the soul of the deceased, who was buried last Friday.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
