A fulani herdsman is alleged to have killed his employer at Nsonyame at the Asante Akyem North district of the Ashanti region.
The deceased has been identified as 55-year-old Agya Hammer.
Assembly man for Ananekrom Electoral area, Peter Abaji confirmed the incident to Adom News.
He said the late Hammer engaged the suspect to take care of his cattle for him but noticed he has been stealing.

The suspect is said to be on the run.
