Bole-Bamboi Road: 3 Arrested In Connection With Murder Of Lawyer
The Savannah Regional Police Patrol team apprehended three individuals, including Benin and Mali nationals, in connection with the weekend murder of a lawyer on the Bole-Bamboi route.
The suspects who were apprehended on Sunday, May 29, are now in police custody and collaborating with investigations.
One of the suspects, whose name has been concealed, is a foreigner who works as a casual worker at the Bole Cocoa Research Centre, according to police sources.
According to the Savannah Regional Police Command, they were apprehended at their hideout, with two more remaining on the loose.
The police patrol squad acted quickly after gathering intelligence and arrested the three suspects.
Inspector Agyekum Owusu, the Savannah Regional Police’s public relations officer, said they’ve been able to track down the other perpetrators and would make sure the rest are captured.
“After the event, which occurred on Saturday morning, the Savannah Regional Command responded to the area and, with the assistance of the Region’s intelligence unit, we were able to pick up three suspects, whom we are profiling to see if they are the true perpetrators.”
“We’re looking for roughly five suspects.”
Some people conduct crimes and leave traces, which we’ve been able to find with the help of the intelligence unit,” he said.
This week, the suspects will be put up in an identification parade for family members who were traveling with Richard Badombue, the slain lawyer.
Armed thieves shot and killed the lawyer on the Bole-Bamboi highway on Saturday.
The victim was driving a Hyundai Accent saloon car with two other passengers from Accra to Jirapa when the event occurred, according to a statement from the Ghana Police Service dated May 28.
“When they reached a part of the road between Banda Nkwanta and Nuoyiri settlements, three armed guys appeared from the bush and signaled them to come to a halt, and as they slowed down, one of the thieves fired and murdered the driver.”
“We will do whatever it necessary to apprehend and prosecute these criminals,” the police said in a statement.
