The police in the Western Region have launched a full-scale investigation into the circumstances leading to the alleged assassination of a 55- year-old lecturer of Takoradi Poly�technic over the weekend.

The alleged murder by unknown assailants occurred at Anoe, a suburb of Kojokrom in the Essikadu Ketan constituency of Western Region.

Daily Guide has gathered that the deceased, Seth Dogbey, popularly called Setho, was believed to have been attacked and killed late Friday evening, but his mutilated body was found on a rail line in the area early Saturday morning.

According to sources, the lifeless body of Seth Dogbey was allegedly dragged by the supposed attackers to the rail line ostensibly for a train to run over it.

The mutilated body has since been deposited at a private mortuary at Funko, near Takoradi.

When Daily Guide contacted Mr Aseidu Kokuro, secretary, Takoradi branch of the Polytechnic Teachers' Association of Ghana {POTAG), he confirmed that the deceased was a lecturer at the institution.

According to the T-Poly POTAG secretary, he heard last Saturday afternoon that the lecturer's dis�membered body was found on a rail line at Anoe.

He indicated that the lecturers of the polytechnic were saddened at the news of the unfortunate incident, stressing that Dogbey was very calm and had no problem with anyone.

"We hear Setho was not killed by a train as was perceived but by some people who dumped the body on the rail line for a train to dismember the body," he alleged.

When Daily Guide ca1led the Western Regional crime officer, Supt Reuben Asiwoko, he also confirmed the death and said the police had launched investigations into the matter.

He revealed that even though the mutilated body of Dogbey was found on the line, what the police saw at the crime scene revealed that there was a foul play and that the deceased might have been murdered and the body dumped on the line before it was run over by a train.
