A Magistrate’s Court at Akropong in the Ashanti Region has remanded, into police custody, five suspects arrested over the alleged murder of Chief of Atwima-Koforidua-Akrofrom.

They are Oyokohene Sanaahene, Nana Kwaku Nkrumah, described by police as key suspect, Paul Nsiah Pobi, Kwabena Acheampong, Ibrahim Ampofo and Yaw Gyamfi, also known as Batman.

The five were picked a day after Nana Adusa the fourth was shot dead on Monday in what is suspected to a chieftaincy dispute.

Police say Nana Nkrumah was spotted a few meters from the crime scene by personnel of the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit on duty on highway patrol.

The suspects are due back in court on the 1 of October.

Background

The chief of Akrofrom in Atwima Koforidua in the Ashanti Region was brutally murdered by some unknown assailants on Monday morning.

Nana Adusa Agyapong IV was shot three times—twice in the neck and once in the leg. He died instantly in the presence of his boys.

The traditional leader had visited a plot of land meant for construction works when the calamity struck around 9am.

The assailants reportedly laid ambush in a bush and opened fire on the chief without provocation.
