Adiza Ibrahim, a 25-year-old nursing mother, died while having casual sex with a driver assistant behind a building, near the Nkawkaw lorry park.
The driver assistant, Eric Osei alias Kwame Osei, a native of Antoapomaa in the Afram Plains, is in police custody, pending further investigations while the woman's body has been deposited at the Kwahu Government Hospital at Atibie for autopsy.
Briefing the Ghana News Agency, acting Nkawkaw Divisional Commander, Police Superintendent Thomas Osei, said the suspect had arrived at Nkawkaw with three others in a truck loaded with foodstuffs from the Afram Plains last Tuesday at about 2000 hours and decided to spend the night in the town before continuing to Akyem Oda the next day.
Osei said at about 2100 hours, the suspect met Adiza and proposed to have sex with her, which she readily agreed to.
He said on a mutual agreement, the suspect took Adiza to a nearby drinking spot and bought her a bottle of Malta Guinness whilst he had three tots of Castle Bridge gin.
The Police Commander said the two later went behind a building near the lorry park to have sex.
He said the deceased placed her cloth on the floor and they had three rounds of sex during which Adiza started vomiting and later became unconscious.
The suspect became frightened and left the scene to his truck, but later returned to see the woman lying dead.
Superintendent Osei said a barber, whose shop was near the scene, came out to meet the suspect who again took to his heels.
The barber, who saw the suspect run away, chased him up to the lorry park where he informed other drivers and their assistants about the death of the woman.
The suspect was later arrested and handed over to a police patrol team.
Supt Osei said he later learnt from Adiza's family that she had a six-month old baby which was sick and on admission at the Holy Family Hospital, Nkawkaw at the time of the incident.
