POLICE PROSECUTORS are seeking the Attorney General’s advice in the case in which Eric KojoDuah is solely standing trial for the killing of two police officers at Budumburam, near Kasoa, in the Central Region.
At the beginning of this case a total of eight persons were arraigned by the police but all were discharged leaving Duah, the alleged killer.
Currently,Duah, aka Sakora, is the sole accused being held on two counts of murder.
In court on Monday, December 2, 2019 when the case was called, ASP Sylvester Asare told the Kaneshie District Court presided over by Her Worship Mrs Eleanor Botwe that the case docket had been forwarded to the AG’s office for study and subsequent advice.
DAILY HERITAGE Court Correspondent MuntallaInusah, who was in court today, reported that even though the Prosecution prayed the court to extend the suspect’s remand warrant, Lawyer Kwame Owusu, who held brief forAugustinesObour, did not oppose.
The magistrate subsequently adjourned the case to December 16, 2019, expressing the hopethe bill of indictment would be ready for committal to be done.
The court has since remanded Duah in the custody of the Bureau of National Investigations to reappear on December 16.
Duah is being held for allegedly killing Sergeant Michael Dzamesi and Lance Corporal Mohammed Awal on August 28, this year, at Kasoa.
The two policemen were among a team of Motor Traffic Transport Department (MTTD) officers who were on task force duties on the Buduburam-Kasoa-Accra road.
The two, while on duty checks, stopped an unregistered Toyota Camry being driven Duah but he refused to stop.
Sergeant Dzamsei and Lance Corporal Awal managed to intercept the unregistered car and Sergeant Dzamesi asked Duah and another occupant to come out of the car.
A struggle ensued between Dzamesi and Duah and Duah went back into the vehicle, pulled out a gun and shot Awal in the left rib and shoulder.
Dzamsei decided to run for his life and sought refuge in a grocery shop but Duah followed him to the shop and shot him three times and bolted in the car.
Police investigations later led to their arrest.
