The Aboradze Family of Cape Coast has expressed worry over a statement made by the National Security Minister-designate, Albert Kan Dapaah, that the police had solved all high-profile murder cases in the country, except that of Ahmed Suale, the Tiger Eye PI undercover journalist.
The Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) Marketing and Public Affairs Manager at the Tema Port, Mrs Josephine Asante, who was murdered on Sunday January 13, 2019, hailed from the Aboradze Family
The Abusuapanin (Head of Family), Mr Kofi Atta, in a telephone conversation with The Chronicle, said that the statement emanating from no mean a person than the former Minister for National Security, Mr Kan Dapaah, at the time of the incident, and currently designate, if not misleading, then there is something the Minister is fully aware of about the case, which is unknown to the family.
Mr Kan Dapaah, when he appeared before the Parliamentary Vetting Committee on Wednesday February 10, 2021, stated that all high-profile murder cases in the country, but that of Ahmed Suale, had been solved.
Mr Atta, therefore, has appealed to the Minister to make clear his statement, since, to the best of the knowledge of the Aboradze Family, the Headquarters of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) was still pursuing the matter, and wondered if he contacted the police before releasing that information to the public.
After the murder in her residence at Emefs Hillview Estate near Afienya in the Ningo Prampram District of the Greater Accra Region, two persons, a house boy, Christian Agyei, and official driver, Amos Apeku, were put before the Tema TDC District Court.
The Magistrate Court is presently waiting for a report from the Attorney General’s Office on the case.
Robert Tandoh, brother of deceased, stated that the Minister’s statement had left the family in a state of confusion, because the next adjournment date is Tuesday February 16, 2021.
According to him, he and the late sister’s husband, Mr Kwame Asante, have been attending the court every adjourned date and that it could not be possible for that case being solved without them knowing.
Meanwhile, a high-ranking officer at the Police Headquarters whispered to the paper that detectives were following a lead which might yield fruits.
