Second suspect in the gruesome murder of Madam Josephine Tanor Asante who was the Marketing and Public Affairs Manager at the Ghana Ports and Harbors Authority has been picked up by the Police.
Officers from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service stormed the residence of Amos Apreku, the personnel driver of the late Josephine at Saki Central, near Michel Camp and arrested him on Wednesday.
Amos has since been remanded into custody to assist the police in their investigations.
The suspect was reportedly the last person of contact with Josephine, as he drove the late Manager from the senior and management staff end-of-year party.
It is reported that he handed over the car to his boss at the Michel Camp Bus Stop, where she took over and drove herself home from the Bus Stop to her residence at Emefs Estate at Mataheko, near Tema.
From Amos’ account, he was contacted by the deceased’s 12 year old son the following morning around 8:30 am, and informed about the murder of his madam.
He rushed to the house and upon entering the house, he found a bunch of keys allegedly used in opening the main gate of the house at the entrance. One of the keys was then used to open the bedroom door of the deceased who was found in a supine position in a pool of blood on the floor.
The driver then lodged a complaint with police who arrived at the scene and later saw the houseboy burying a polythene bag containing an amount of GH¢430 and a wrist watch close to the boys’ quarters in the house.
