The chief suspect involved in the murder of Marcus Mawutor Adzahli, the Assemblyman for Sogakope South, has finally confessed to the killing.
Director General of the Criminal Investigations Department, COP Isaac Ken Yeboah, disclosed this at a press conference purported to address how far the police is progressing with investigation on cases that have gained national interest for the first quarter of the year.
From COP Ken’s statement, the suspect confessed to the shooting and stabbing of the assemblyman because the deceased fought back.
He added that the suspect who has only been identified as Amos has denied any involvement of contract killing as speculated by the public.
According to COP Yeboah, Amos who was arrested on 24th March, 2020, has also mentioned the names of those involved in the killing as well as their leader.
“He confessed that he, together with one of the persons on the run, shot the deceased after the deceased resisted which made them shoot him,” he added
Mr Adzahli was found dead in a pool of blood after he was shot multiple times in his home on March 1, 2020. Residents who suspected the murder to be contract killing protested about the poor security in the vicinity.
