Apaaso Murder Case: Police arrest two suspects

The police have taken two individuals into custody in connection with the murder of Princess Afia Ahenkan, a 35-year-old woman in Apaaso near Sokoban Ampabame, located in the Ashanti Region.

The arrested suspects have been identified as Allister John, who served as the deceased’s house-help, and his alleged accomplice, James Anokye.

According to a police statement posted on Facebook on Friday, the two suspects were apprehended as a result of a meticulously planned intelligence operation carried out on September 14, 2023.

The police further revealed that following the commission of the crime, the suspects absconded with the victim’s KIA Sportage private car, bearing registration number GS 307-21, which they subsequently sold.

However, the vehicle has been located in Adenta, complete with its accompanying documents. It has subsequently been seized by authorities and is currently held at the Oyibi Police Station. Ongoing efforts are aimed at apprehending the buyer of the vehicle to aid in the ongoing investigation, as stated by the police.

In the meantime, the deceased’s body has been placed in the morgue at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital to undergo preservation and an autopsy.

Afua Ahenkan, also known as Princess Afua, reportedly suffered multiple stab wounds at the hands of a young man she had hired through an agency just one month prior to the tragic incident.

Although details surrounding the killing are limited, preliminary reports indicate that she is the daughter-in-law of Reverend Osei Kofi, a former Ghana Black Stars and Asante Kotoko football legend.

Mrs. Ahenkan had apparently enlisted the services of the suspect to assist with her business, given that her husband resides in the United Kingdom.

The assailant is alleged to have launched the attack on the victim while she was engaged in a phone conversation. Her desperate cries for help during the assault raised concerns for the caller on the other end of the line. Consequently, this concerned individual decided to visit her residence after repeated unanswered phone calls.

According to reports, the suspect then purportedly moved the lifeless body of the victim into the garage and made off with her car, money, and other personal belongings.
