Kwabenya police murder: 4 arrested, coffin, bones found at suspect house

The Police say nine persons have been arrested in connection with the murder of two police officers in Kwabenya and Lapaz in the last seven months.

In the Kwabenya killing, a 28-year old woman Nancy Bentaah alias Awurama and George Yeboah Akarh, also known as Kwasi Shower, have been picked up in the gang attack at the police cell over the weekend at Kwabenya in Accra. Two out of seven other suspects who broke jail in the Kwabenya attack have also been arrested. The remaining five are still on the run.

According to the Inspector General of Police, David Asante-Apeatu, in the last 24 hours, one the two suspects, a 32-year-old Kofi Acheampong also known as Nana Owuo who is believed to be the spiritual father of the gang.


He is also suspected to be the supplier of deadly weapons used by the suspected criminals in the Sunday dawn attack.

The IGP said coffins and skeletons were found at the place of arrest.

Describing the Sunday attack as an “awful and unforgettable day”, COP Asante-Apeatu asked the public to help the police administration with information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the cop killers.
