#JusticeForRuthEshun: One more suspect arrested; REGSEC tightens security


The Police have arrested one more person in connection with the murder of Ruth Eshun, a nurse at Ayuom near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

This brings the number to two, the number of arrests made in connection with the case, reports say.

Earlier a mobile device retrieved from the crime scene led to the arrest of the first suspect who is a commercial driver.

The suspects are currently in custody assisting police in their investigations.

Police in the Ashanti Region are yet to give full details on the matter as calls to demand justice for the slain nurse intensify.

REGSEC tightens security at Ayuom

At least three murder cases have been reported in the Ashanti Region in what appears to be a new wave of crime targeting women.

In the latest incident, the Ashanti Regional Security Council has ordered intensified patrols at Ayuom and its surrounding communities.

Ashanti Regional Minister Simon Osei Mensah will not accept the increasing trends, but has assured of improved security in the region.

“We want everybody to go about his or her normal duties without fear. The crime rate as compared to previous years has reduced. It is unfortunate that the has happened”, Mensah, adding that, “I cannot say there is any serious trend”.

#JusticeForRuthEshun launched

A social media campaign has been intensified to mount pressure on the Ghana Police Service to being the perpetrators to book.

The Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives’ Association which Eshun is a member has also joined the campaign, describing the act as “inhumane”.

The Association earlier called on health workers at the Sewuah Health Center —where the deceased worked to commiserate with her colleagues.
