Suspect remanded over mechanic's death at Alajo

His remand follows a plea by police prosecutors who asked for some time to complete their investigations.

The suspect who is said to be a client of the deceased mechanic, Yaw Boadi was on Monday charged with murder at the Abeka District court.

Lawyer for the suspect during the hearing of the case prayed the court to grant their client the opportunity to be given medical care as according to them his health was deteriorating.

The plea, however, was granted by the court.

The shooting occurred following a misunderstanding over a parking space after which deceased was sent to the Greater Accra Regional (Ridge Hospital) Hospital Tuesday afternoon in critical condition.

Eyewitnesses said that the mechanic had asked the car dealer to move his vehicle away from where it was parked to make way for others moving into and out of the warehouse.

But the suspect got furious and had a heated exchange of words with the mechanic and the other artisans.

In the midst of the misunderstanding, the suspect fired a warning shot before aiming at the mechanic.

Residents did not take the shooting lightly and started attacking the suspect in his car.
