2 Nigerians arrested for attempted murder

TWO Nigerians who allegedly attempted to murder a Ghanaian music producer for terminating a contract with one of them, have been nabbed by the police at West Legon in Accra.

The suspects, Tejeh Terry, 24, an upcoming musician and Simon Terry, 26, unemployed, were reported to have conspired to kill Nana Nyarko Afriyie for terminating a two-year contract to manage Tejeh as an upcoming musician.

They allegedly conspired to kill him and set his house ablaze, aside stealing his valuables.

Luck, however, eluded them when they were arrested by plain-clothed police personnel when they embarked on their mission.

The Accra Regional Police Crime Officer, Chief Superintendent Paul Kontomah, told The Ghanaian Times that Tejeh and Afriyie signed a two- year contract last year in Nigeria for Afriyie to manage him.

He said Afriyie later terminated the contract for personal reasons which were not favourable to Tejeh, so he contracted Simon to kill him.

Chief Supt. Kontomah said on March 15, the police received information that the two suspects, in Madina, wanted to hire guns to kill Afriyie at Dome, in Accra.

He said plain-clothed police personnel who were detailed to arrest the two, met them and feigned interest in the deal, but arrested them on their way to strike.

In addition, he disclosed that a spanner was found on Terry, and that the suspects were currently in police custody assisting in investigations, after which they would be put before court.
