The Ghana Police Service has just made an arrest of Inspector Ahmed Twumasi, who has been identified as the main suspect in Maa Adwoa’s murder.
Inspector Twumasi, also known as Taakum, was apprehended in his hideout in Sekyere, a town close to Effiduase in Ghana’s Ashanti Region, according to the security force.
According to a press release from the Ghana Police Service:
POLICE INSPECTOR ARRESTED FOR THE MURDER OF A WOMAN IN KUMASI IN THE ASHANTI REGION
The Police have this evening arrested a Police officer, Inspector Ahmed Twumasi, who is alleged to have shot and killed a female adult, who was believed to be his girlfriend.
The shooting incident occurred in Kumasi, in the Ashanti region, on Thursday, 20th April 2023.
The suspect, who has been on the run since the incident, was arrested at Sekyere, near Effiduase in the Ashanti region as a result of a special police operation, which was launched following the shooting incident.
The suspect is currently in police custody and will be put before court to face justice.
For reportedly cheating on him last Thursday, Inspector Ahmed is accused of killing Maa Adwoa by shooting her five times.
An audio recording that appeared online yesterday described the moment the police officer called a close relative to tell her about the crime he had committed before being apprehended this evening.
The police officer’s voice claimed that the man killed the woman because she had been mistreating him despite his efforts to look after her.
