The Ghana Police Service seem to be loosing grips in the gruesome murder of former Marketing and Public Affairs Manager of Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, Madam Josephine Tanor Asante, as they have released statement, contradictory to earlier statements they released.
The Police released a statement initially, suggesting the possibility of sexual assault during the murder of the victim. A court order was even acquired to analyze the semen of the deceased’s houseboy.
However, the police have come out to rule out the possibility of sexual assault by claiming that there was no semen found on the deceased’s body. This new has come at a time when the court was about to hear results of the semen analysis.
Director of Police Public Affairs ACP David Eklu revealed on Accra-based Citi FM that the police did not find anything to suggest that the deceased was sexually assaulted.
“The forensic examination we conducted indicated that the lady was not raped unlike what is in the media. There was no sexual assault on the lady and we can confirm that. We are looking at other possibilities in terms of the investigations we are conducting,” he stated.
Photographs were captured by a crime scene investigator and samples of semen, foot and fingerprints were taken for other examinations.
While the crime scene was being assessed right after the incident, the houseboy was seen burying a polythene bag, containing an amount of GHC 430 and the victims watch near the boys’ quarters. He was arrested with suspicion of having knowledge about the crime.
Madam Josephine Asante who is a top GPHA official was recently murdered in cold blood by yet-to-be-identified assailants at her residence at Emefs Estate at Mataheko, a suburb of Tema.
