Four people arrested in connection with the murder of Emmanuel Yaw Benneh, a law professor at the University of Ghana, have been charged with murder.
They are Christian Pobee, Isaac Botchwey, James Nana Womba, and Adams Mensah Mansur.
This individuals are individuals who conducted services at the residence of the deceased lecturer as cleaners and gardeners.
At his Adjirigano mansion in Accra on Thursday, Prof Emmanuel Yaw Benneh was reportedly assassinated, but on Saturday morning the body was found.
“The academic was” murdered “in the same manner as the late Abuakwa North MP, Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu, according to his colleague at the University of Ghana Law Faculty, Dr Poku Adusei.
He said on Facebook, “It seems to be an act perpetuated about three days ago [Thursday], but it was only discovered this morning.”
Legal papers filed at the Kaneshie District Court by JoyNews revealed that Prof Benneh was found dead with a rag in his mouth and his hands and legs bound with a cord.
The job of police investigators is now being questioned by attorneys representing two of the suspected parties.
On Wednesday, a member of the defense team, Robert Sumaa, told the court that the lawyers had refused to show how the alleged parties were tied to the crime.
He begged the court to give them parole, arguing that the police would pursue rigorous inquiries, despite being devastated by the lecturer ‘s death.
State lawyers resisted the bond offer, arguing that investigations had just began and the offer was premature.
The Judge, led by Eleanor Botwe, granted bail to the convicted people. The matter was adjourned until September 30.
