Police in Saclepea, Nimba County are investigating what appears to be a double murder involving a 25-year-old Alphanso Bartuah who allegedly flogged his 73-year-old father, Samuel Bartuah, to death.

Bartuah was alleged to have committed the act following reports that his late father had earlier killed his 60-year-old mother for denying him sex and brutalizing his junior brother.

The actual cause of Mr. Bartuah’s death is yet to be established but his elder son Alphanso, currently facing Police interrogation, narrated that his junior brother 19-year-old Larry Bartuah, who is a commercial motorcyclist, called and informed him that their late father (Bartuah) had seriously wounded him (Larry).

Sources told the New Dawn Nimba County Correspondent that the late Samuel Bartuah who was allegedly flogged to death by his son Alphanso had reportedly chopped up his 60-year-old wife and mother of his children, Martha Gweh Bartuah with a cutlass for denying him sex.

His son, Alphanso, having been informed by his little brother Larry that their father had allegedly murdered their mother and wounded him (Larry) moved in and reportedly clubbed their father to death in an act of apparent revenge.

Alphanso was said to have wasted no time in finishing up his father after he saw his late mother Martha lying in a pool of blood and his junior brother bleeding from injuries allegedly sustained from their late father.

Report says after killing his wife, the late Samuel Bartuah decided to set himself ablaze, but he didn’t burn to death before his son, suspect Alphanso killed him. Editing by Jonathan Browne
