Police officer detained over death of girlfriend in Konongo
A police officer with the Konongo Divisional Taskforce has been detained over the death of her girlfriend.
Sergeant Bright Opoku was picked up following the death of Vida Frema, a 30-year-old tutor of the Kumasi Girls' Senior High School.
The officer has since been transferred to the Kumasi after the Regional Police Criminal and Investigations Department (CID) takes over the case.
The deceased was found hanging on a rope in the suspect's residence at Low Cost, a suburb of Konongo.
Unconfirmed reports suggests that the suspect returned from work to find his girlfriend dead on Monday.
Relatives of the deceased, however, suspect foul play and are calling for justice.
A blood-stained knife is said to have been found in the corner of the room where the deceased is alleged to have committed suicide.
Police have declined comment.

An autopsy report was due for release on Thursday by health officials at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, but it is not certain if police have laid their hands on the report.
A visit to the private residence of the suspect also reveals the room has been put under lock and key as relatives and police retrieve belongings of the deceased.
