The Police have arrested two suspects in connection with the murder of a 35-year-old woman, Princess Afia Ahenkan at Apaaso near Sokoban Ampabame in the Ashanti Region.
They are Allister John, who was the house-help of the deceased, and his alleged accomplice, James Anokye.
The Police in a Facebook post on Friday stated that the two suspects were apprehended through a targeted intelligence-led operation on 14th September 2023.
“The operation followed a Police report on the whereabouts of the deceased and the subsequent discovery of her body in the garage of her residence by the Police crime scene experts,” it added.
The police noted that the suspects after committing the crime, went into hiding with the deceased’s KIA Sportage private car with registration No. GS 307-21 which they subsequently sold.
The car has, however, been found at Adenta with its documents and subsequently impounded at the Oyibi Police Station for further investigation while efforts are underway to arrest the buyer to assist the investigation, said the police.
Meanwhile, the body of the deceased has since been deposited at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital morgue for preservation and autopsy.https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fweb.facebook.com%2FGhPoliceService%2Fposts%2Fpfbid02a2SKQv3bAzrffYo2mPK8gW91Xn59ZzdFh3ratmvT7z7oRshVaebzwXMzUvQbekD9l&show_text=true&width=500
Afua Ahenkan, also known as Princess Afua, was allegedly stabbed several times by the young man she hired from an agency barely one month ago.
Though information on the killing is scanty, reports suggest that she is the daughter-in-law of former Ghana Black Stars and Asante Kotoko legend, Reverend Osei Kofi.
Mrs Ahenkan is said to have hired the services of the suspect to support her business since her husband is domiciled in the United Kingdom.
The suspect is said to have attacked the deceased while she was on a phone call.
The wild cry for help by the deceased is said to have raised the suspicion of the caller at the other end who then travelled to her house after several phone calls later went unanswered.
Reports say the suspect dragged her lifeless body into the garage and bolted with his madam’s car, money and other belongings.
