A 23-year-old final student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) who has been identified as Emmanuel Awuah is in the grips of Tafo Police for the murder of one Thomas Kwame Danso, an Uber driver.
The arrest was made after the ‘car owner’ who checks up on his driver in a two-hour interval did not hear from him in four hours. He alerted the police and the suspect was arrested shortly after.
It is reported that Emmanuel Awuah lent an amount of Ghc1,200 to the driver for the maintenance of his car but had refused to pay back after several confrontations.
The suspect then feigned interest in the services of the victim lured him into a secluded area and strangled him with a rope until he passed away and bolted with the vehicle.
The police found the remains of the victim after interrogation in the bush where it was dumped with the head almost rotten.
Divisional Police Commander, ACP Annor Arhin confirmed the arrest to UTV News.
“One Daniel Owusu lodged a complaint that he could not get hold of his driver. He normally talks to him on phone after every two hours but it had passed four hours and he still had not heard from the driver. So we ordered for the arrest of the car and its occupants.”
The heinous act is reported to have been committed by the suspect with the help of an unnamed accomplice who is currently at large.
Emmanuel Awuah who completed his tertiary education in the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) studied Geological Engineering.
