Four people are being investigated for their involvement in the robbery and murder an engineer with Joshop Construction in Kumasi.
They have been named as Mustapha Adams, 33, Ibrahim Adamu, 39, Seidu Bona alias ‘Lion’ 33 and Mohammed Abubakar, 33.
The four suspects have been remanded into police custody by a court, the Ashanti Regional Police Command said on Wednesday.
40-year-old Emmanuel Owusu Antwi, an engineer with Joshop Construction was on Thursday, March 25, robbed of his Toyota Prado with registration number GN 4131-20 and shot in the process by three armed men.
He was rushed to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) after sustaining gunshot wounds but later died while receiving treatment at the health facility.
Police Spokesperson ASP Godwin Ahianyo at a press briefing said investigations led to the arrest of the suspects who have also been linked to other robbery related cases in the Ashanti Region.
“Investigation has also established that, the same suspects attacked and robbed the Hon MCE of Asokore Mampong [Alidu Seidu] of his Toyota Hilux with registration number GW 2473-16 on 12th February, 2021. The suspects again attacked and robbed another victim on 15th April, 2021 of his unregistered Range Rover at Buokrom F-Line”, ASP Ahianyo said.
One of the suspects Mustapha Adams, together with his accomplices who are on the run again robbed a Honda Accord DV Trade Plate with registration number 4894 A at Achiase near Kenyase on April 25.
He was however arrested three days later when he attempted to commit similar crime involving a Toyota 4 Runner with DV Plate at gun point, police say.
Mustapha led the police to arrest two of the suspects who are assisting police investigations.
