Published

on

The mobile phone of the late Asamponhene of Otumfuo Osei Tutu, Oheneba Kwadwo Afodour, which was retrieved from his vehicle at the crime scene is giving the Ashanti Regional police a clue which will help them close in on the perpetrators of the heinous crime.

The police began investigations into the murder case last Monday, and so far, three arrests have been made and the police yesterday told the Daily Graphic that more clues were coming after they had retrieved the phone.

A police source, who told the Daily Graphic that a press conference scheduled for yesterday had to be called off, confirmed that vital information had been retrieved from the cellular phone of the deceased which “has given the police an idea about the perpetrators.”

The phone was found in the vehicle of the deceased on the scene last Sunday and has since been in the custody of the police.

The source explained that the police were still putting “the pieces of information together before proceeding with the arrest of all the suspects.”

From the arrests made last Monday, one person has been released on police enquiry bail but two are still in custody but the police are reluctant to reveal their identity

Phone call

Last Monday, the police told the Daily Graphic that before the tragic incident on Sunday, the late Nana Afodour received a phone call from one of the suspects, inviting him to meet him at Suame, a suburb of Kumasi, to settle an outstanding loan the former had taken from the latter.

However, later that day, the body of the murdered chief was found at the back of his vehicle, while there had also been an attempt to set the vehicle ablaze.

Background

Last Sunday, the body of the 46-year-old Oheneba Kwadwo Afodour was found with multiple stab wounds on his body in his car, which was partially burnt.

The Asamponhene was also the owner of X5 pub at Krofrom, a suburb of Kumasi.

IGP must support the #FixTheCountry movement

Published

The NDC Professionals Forum in the United States has called on the Inspector-General of Police and the police institution in Ghana to begin to find wisdom in the need to support the #FixTheCountry movement.

This is even more imperative after a police officer was fatally shot and killed in a broad daylight robbery in Accra on Monday the 14th of June when armed men on a motorcycle, opened fire on a bullion van transporting cash from a business hub to the bank.

We extend our condolences to the Ghana Police Service and the bereaved families. As a professional body, we believe that his unfortunate situation must trigger the police service to review its position on their hardcore stance in blocking a peaceful demonstration by Ghanaian youths who want the best for their country.

The Professionals Forum in North America supports the #FixTheCountry Movement. It is time to do things right as a country and about time the government begins to FixTheCountry we all call home.

Sadly, another Ghanaian youth with the Ghana Police Service has been shot and killed through careless arrangements for his safety. It is high time we as a nation begin to protect the lives and properties of Ghanaians through proper ways of doing things.

Why should we move money through traffic in broad daylight and expose everyone involved in today’s sophisticated era of crime? Can we investigate the proliferation of arms in the hands of wrong people? What happened to building landing sites for helicopters or better still moving monies at night with drones monitoring in the air with live feed? Can we begin to think outside the box and prioritize the safety of our people?

Our dear nation is overwhelmed with hardship and insecurity, and it is the duty of all to call out those who have carelessly created the mess to #FixTheCountry.
