Ghost Killer’s Gang Smashed

Four people who robbed and raped one of three  Thai ladies in their house at Deduako, in Kumasi, in the Ashanti Region, have been arrested by the police.

The suspects, who allegedly committed the crime on January 14, are Kwame Antwi, also known as “Ghost Killer,” 28, Kwaku Sarpong, 25, a trader, Kwadwo Kumi and Nana Kwasi Agyemang, both 22.

They were said to have broken into the house of the victims, who operate a Massage Centre in the area, at about 10pm, and subjected them to the ordeal.

One of the robbers allegedly raped the eldest of the women, 33, at gun point.  They sought to rape the other two girls, but stopped, upon realising they were menstruating

They then locked them up as well as the victim’s brother-in-law, in a water closet and ransacked the house.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Augustine Gyening, the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, confirmed the arrest to The Ghanaian Times yesterday, and indicated  the suspects managed to escape with their booty before the police got to the scene.

They made away with a new laptop, expensive jewelry, seven mobile phones and a generator, GH¢5,500 and 800 dollars,  cash.

They were  arrested three days later, at their hideout at Kenyasi, in Kumasi, and the police retrieved several laptops, jewelry, digital cameras, mobile telephones, a wrist watch, an unregistered motor bike, as well as GH¢5,000 and 800 dollars from them.

DCOP Gyening said the suspects were part of a gang which has been terrorising residents, particularly students, in the Kumasi municipality.

They denied engaging in the crime during interrogation, but the Police Commander said they would be arraigned before court soon. From Kingsley E. Hope, Kumasi
