Police arrest another suspect in Nkwanta murder case


The Nkwanta police have apprehended another suspect in connection with the murder of 32-year-old James Mpoacha at Nkwanta.

The deceased was allegedly murdered by two of his friends and dumped in a bush.

The Nkwanta police located Mpoacha's decomposed body off the Odomi-Nkwanta main road after a thorough search and arrested Sulemana Alhassan, butcher.

He has been remanded by an Nkwanta Magistrate Court into prison custody and is to reappear on January 7 next year.

The accomplice, Mumuni Adam, 48, a farmer, was arrested on November 30 when he was reported to have been undergoing fortification processes to avoid police arrest.

Mr Hayford Kwame Asempa, Nkwanta District Crime Officer, told the GNA that police traced Adam to his residence upon a tip off.
