Murdered Nurse ‘Killers’ Remanded –

The two suspects

TWO SUSPECTS, who are being held in
connection with the murder of Ruth Eshun, a Community Nurse at Ayuom in the
Ashanti Region, have been remanded in police custody.

The suspects, Dominic Fosu, aka ‘Creative’, and Kofi Gariba, aka
‘Amanya’, who were picked up separately by the police, will appear in court again
on March 11, 2020.

Their plea was not taken at the Asokwa District Court, presided
over by Korkor Achaw Owusu, as the prosecution told the court that the
investigations into the case were still ongoing.

They said other suspects were also being hunted for by the police
to face the law.

Before adjourning the case to March 11, the court had refused a
bail application by the lawyers of the first accused person, Dominic Fosu.

Ruth Eshun, who was 37 years old, was found dead close to her
house at Ayuom in the Bosomtwe District of the Ashanti Region on February 4.

Eyewitnesses said the body looked like some people had raped her
before she was gruesomely murdered. Ruth Eshun was buried recently under tight
security and her death had sparked public outrage.
