The Nkawkaw District Court has taken action by remanding all the suspects involved in the Bepong case.

A total of 37 suspects were presented before the court, presided over by Judge Isaac Adjei.

The violence that brought about this legal action stemmed from the alleged rape and murder of 45-year-old Akua Kyerewaa, reportedly by 23-year-old ex-convict Kwasi Tenkorang.

In response to the situation, over 40 individuals were arrested by the police and are now facing prosecution.

In the Friday, February 9, 2024, court proceedings, 37 of the suspects were remanded, with a scheduled reappearance set for February 23, 2024, a source from the Ghana Police Service told GhanaWeb.
