The suspects are Yaw Amankwa aka Bulla, Nana Kwadwo aka Nana Ajo, Maame Dedeekor, Tikwah, Yaw Boadu and Kofi Ahenkora.

The suspects are said to have played various roles leading to the death of the army Major, who was lynched in the area after he was mistaken for a thief.

He died as a Captain in the army but was posthumously made a Major by President Nana Akufo-Addo.

Yaw Amankwa, Yaw Annor and Kwesi Asante are suspected to have fired at the soldier before being lynched by a mob, as two bullets were discovered in the soldier’s body as well as bullet wounds.

A statement issued and signed by ASP Olivia Turkson, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, indicated that Bulla is about five feet five inches tall, slim built with black hair, brown eyes and medium ears.

“He is believed to be in his mid 40s and suspected to be hiding in Ivory Coast,” the statement claimed.

Madam Dedeekor is also believed to be in her early 50s, dark in complexion and is about four feet eight inches tall.
