Having confessed to the crime of murdering his 43-year-old mother and 11-year-old sister, one would have expected that the young footballer, Solomon Nyantakyi, would proceed to give reasons or better still explain the circumstances that led to the dreadful incident.
The contrary is what is happening as Solomon Nyantakyi, who is currently under investigations has refused to disclose details of what led to the murder of his relations to the Italian police.
Solomon, following the murder on Tuesday night, confessed to being guilty of committing the crime. Interrogations to ascertain the specific reasons why that happened has proved futile as the footballer is firmly holding back information.
The 21-year-old was arrested by police on an escape route in Milan on Wednesday morning after tracking him following the murder of his mother, Patience Nfum and his kid sister, Magdalene Nyantakyi, 11, who were all Ghanaians residing in Italy.
The woman, Patience Nfum, originally from Ghana arrived in Italy some years back to live with the family.
Raymond Nyantakyi, elder brother of the suspect, reportedly discovered the lifeless bodies of his mother and sister on his return from work Tuesday evening.
Nyantakyi, the head of the family was traumatized upon reaching the police station after he had received news of the murder. The husband and father had recently moved to London barely two months ago because of work.
It is still unclear, the reason for the murder but reports suggest Solomon Nyantakyi may have been under the influence of narcotics as he committed the heinous crime. While many believe his affiliation to a notorious gang may have been the reason for his recent action, his team coaches attribute Nyantakyi’s actions to depression.
Solomon was touted as one of the rising stars in Italian football as he flourished in the youth system of Parma, winning several titles with them.
He was promoted to the Parma senior team by Roberto Donadoni before the club went on administration and the young player’s career took a nose dive.
The 21-year-old played for Serie D for Imolese Calcio last season. He is reported to have put his career on hold and joined a gang noted for committing serious crimes in Italy.
