A police officer with the Konongo Divisional Taskforce has been detained over the death of her girlfriend.

Sergeant Bright Opoku was picked up following the death of Vida Frema, a 30-year-old tutor of the Kumasi Girls' Senior High School.

The officer has since been transferred to the Kumasi after the Regional Police Criminal and Investigations Department (CID) takes over the case.

The deceased was found hanging on a rope in the suspect's residence at Low Cost, a suburb of Konongo.

Unconfirmed reports suggests that the suspect returned from work to find his girlfriend dead on Monday.
