Police investigated four suspects for homicide, possession of weapons

Four persons are assisting the Accra Regional Police Command over the murder of one Osei Owusu, 32. They have been transferred to the Amasaman Divisional Police Command to assist in investigations. The suspects are likely to face a murder charge as well as possession of firearms and ammunition without lawful authority after investigations.

One Opanin Asane Kwame, 64 years, who is alleged to be the owner of the two Pump Action guns, has also been arrested. The Chief of Aburi engaged Kofi Akotia to ensure clear boundary demarcations to separate lands between Mempemehuasem and Odumasi since both communities fall under his chiefdom.

DSP Effia Tenge, Head of Public Affairs Unit, said the boundary exercise commenced last week without informing the Adjen Kotoku Police who is responsible for the area.

She said they were confronted by the youth of the Odumase community with two of them holding pump-action guns which led to a verbal exchange between the parties. The youth opened fire on Mr. Akotie and his men leading to serious injury to one Owusu who later died at the Nsawam Government Hospital.
The body of Owusu has been conveyed to the Police Hospital Morgue.
