More Victims Identify Prophetess’s Killers

YOHUNO (3)A week after the publication in the media of the six suspects who allegedly murdered the prophetess and the UK branch chairman of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), more people have come to identify them for committing other crimes at different locations.

While some of the victims identified them by their faces and modus operandi, the Akosombo Police identified them as those who robbed the Star Oil filling station at Juapong, in the Volta Region of GH¢4,750 and made away with items from the station’s mini shop.

The Accra Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Christian Tetteh Yohuno, told The Ghanaian Times in an interview yesterday that a number of people thronged the Regional Command to identify the suspects on seeing the publication.

According to the Regional Commander, the Akosombo Police had it that, after the gang had robbed the filling station on May 24, the attendants raised the alarm which attracted a crowd from the community which gave them a chase.

Realising that the people were closing in on to them (suspects), they opened fire on the people injuring six, who are currently receiving treatment at a hospital.

Mr. Yohuno said, luck eluded Joseph Adjetey, a member of the gang, who emerged from the bush in the morning to board a vehicle to Accra, and he was arrested and when interrogated, he admitted the offence saying he committed it together with his colleagues who were linked to the murder of the two.

The Regional Commander said a reverend minister, who had also returned from the UK and whose house was adjacent to the CPP chairman’s, called the police on the day of the incident, July 25.

He said the two grand-daughters of the CPP chairman, who also suffered an ordeal in the hands of the robbers, also identified them as those who murdered their grandfather.

In the case of the prophetess, DCOP Yohuno said her husband also identified the robbers as those who killed his wife, Agnes Koomson, of the Great Saviour Ministry at Lomnava, an Accra, suburb.

The Commander said the Kasoa Police also identified the suspects as those who committed a series of robberies at Kasoa and its environs including the MTN office and later shot and killed a young lady at the Kasoa traffic light.

The Police said after the incident, they proceeded to Akwele, a suburb of Kasoa and in an extreme circumstance, killed a gang member, called Randy Teye, alias Kaska.

The suspects are Yaw Dodzi, alias Awudu, 29, Yusif Seidu, alias Issiew, 23, Solomon Lamptey alias Raja, 25, Sumaila Ayittey, 18, Richard Avor, 26, and Nii Lamptey Daniel, 20.
