The Police Service has, through a targeted intelligence-led operation on 14 September 2023, arrested two suspects in connection with the murder of a 35-year-old woman identified as Princess Afia Ahenkan at Apaaso near Sokoban Ampabame in the Ashanti Region.
The operation followed a police report on the whereabouts of the deceased and the subsequent discovery of her body in the garage of her residence by crime-scene experts.
Further police investigations led to the arrest of Allister John, who was the househelp of the deceased, and his accomplice James Anokye, in Accra.
They were on the run with the deceased’s KIA Sportage private car with registration No. GS 307-21, which they subsequently sold.
The car was found at Adenta with its documents and subsequently impounded at the Oyibi Police Station for further investigation while efforts are underway to arrest the buyer to assist with the investigation.
Meanwhile, the body of the deceased has been deposited at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital morgue for preservation and autopsy.
