FOUR PERSONS have been apprehended by the Emef police in connection with the alleged killing of a 37-year-old drinking bar operator at Kakasunaka No1 in the Kpone-Katamanso District of the Greater Accra Region.
The suspects are Freedom Ateh, 23; Masawudu Adams, 26; Felix Narh, 18 and Enoch Kwame Tetteh.
The mortal remains of Samuel Kwame Owusu have been deposited at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra for autopsy and preservation.
Chief Superintendent Kwesi Ofori, Acting Dodowa Divisional Police Commander, confirmed the incident to DAILY GUIDE, indicating that on June 28, 2015 at about 2:30 pm, the suspects, after repairing a container and were returning home, chanced upon a suspected thief who was said to have stolen football jersey, shot.
The suspected thief, he noted, was assaulted by the suspects from Kakasunanka No.1 near the main junction to the township, where the drinking spot of the deceased was located.
Upon reaching the bar, the police officer pointed out, the suspects wanted to take empty bottles from a crate to assault the suspected thief but Kwame Owusu prevented them from taking the bottles.
According to Chief Superintendent Kwesi Ofori, Enoch Tetteh used a piece of wood he was holding – meant to assault the suspected jersey thief – to strike Samuel’s head from behind.
He fell unconscious as he bled profusely before he was rushed to the Tema General Hospital where he was referred to the 37 Military Hospital in Accra and then transferred to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital on the same day. Samuel passed on the following day while on admission.
The purported leader of the gang, Masawudu, was arrested at Tema and led the police to the hideouts of the remaining suspects who were also nabbed.
