Vivian’s body lying near the transformer at Ahodwo Roundabout
RESIDENTS OF Ahodwo Roundabout, a suburb of Kumasi, woke up Monday morning to the disturbing news of the murder of a woman in her early 40s.
The deceased, believed to be a commercial sex worker, was identified as Vivian, a mother of two who resided at Suame, another suburb of the city.
She was reportedly killed under mysterious circumstances in the wee hours of Monday by some unknown bloodthirsty assailants.
Vivian’s lifeless body was dumped close to a transformer near the Ahodwo Roundabout. There were bruises and blood on her neck as she lay near the transformer, an indication that she struggled with her killers before dying.
Part of Vivian’s clothes was torn, exposing her stomach and other vital parts, with condoms scattered at the crime scene.
What influenced Vivian’s killers to end her life in that wicked manner was not immediately known, leaving room for people to speculate.
Some suspected that some of her male clients strangled her to death for voodoo purposes while others alleged that she was killed by some of her colleague commercial sex workers who operate at the Ahodwo Roundabout.
Some residents claimed they heard excessive noise which suggested that the commercial sex workers in the area were fighting on Sunday night.
During the paper’s visit to the crime scene around 8am on Monday, scores of curious people from other parts of the city had trooped there.
Some ladies believed to be commercial sex workers had also besieged the area to verify if indeed the disturbing news of the passing of Vivian was true.
