The Greater Accra Regional Police has picked up four persons in connection with the murder of Prof Emmanuel Yaw Benneh, a senior Law lecturer at the University of Ghana.
The persons: two cleaners, Christian Pobee, 32 and James Nana Womba, 26; a house help, Isaac Botchwey, 41; and a gardener, Adams Mensah Mansur, 52.
The Accra Regional Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Afia Tenge in an interview confirmed this to Joy News.
“Currently a team of investigators including the Crime Scene management team from the CID have begun investigations and are undertaking thorough crime scene reconstruction analysis to help the police clear headway into the unfortunate incident.”
She further added that police will readily inform any development which will not jeopardise the investigations to the public.
Prof Emmanuel Yaw Benneh was allegedly murdered at his Adjirigano mansion in Accra.
According to his colleague at the Faculty, Dr Poku Adusei, the academic was “murdered” in the same fashion as the late Abuakwa North MP, Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu.
“It appears to be an act perpetuated about three days ago [Thursday], but it was just discovered this morning,” he said of the unfortunate incident at late Prof Benneh’s.
Police picked up the body of Prof Benneh who lives alone from his home on Saturday morning.
