The prime suspect involved in the murder of two police officers attached to the Kasoa police station, Eric Kojo Duah, has been remanded into police custody.
He has been remanded together with his six other accomplices and will re-appear in court September 26, 2019.
Duah, Amissah Isaac and Zakariah Ibrahim were remanded into custody at the BNI while the rest Mensah Isaac, Oblitey Commey, VIctor Yire and Fatau Ahmed have been detained at the police cells at Osu.
They have been charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder and abatement.
Duah was heading towards the Volta region before being arrested at the Atimpoku bridge in a black Golf car with registration number GW 5972 – 18.
Unarmed Sgt. Michael Gyamasie and L/CPL Awal Mohammed were shot to death by the suspects on Wednesday at Gomoa Buduburam, near Kasoa in the Central region. One of the cops died on the spot while the other died at the Police Hospital. They were on task force duties at Kasoa-Winneba highway when the incident occurred.
This brings to five—the number of police officers gruesomely murdered in the last 30 days.
On July 30, 2019, Corporal Agatha Nana Nabin with the Northern Regional Police Command was shot dead at a police checkpoint on the Tamale-Kumbungu road in the Sagnarigu District.
The report is that armed and masked men in a grey saloon car discharged their weapons after being stopped at the check-point.
The killers took away two rifles belonging to the deceased and her colleague who escaped.
Some “persons of interest” are standing trial in connection with the incident.
