By on

The Ghana Police has teamed up with Interpol to hunt down two of six persons whose names have come up in the gruesome murder of a military officer, Major Maxwell A. Mahama, at Denkyira-Obuasi in the Central Region.

According to the Police, investigations have established the six persons were part of those who allegedly murdered the military officer on May 29, 2017 while on a national assignment in the area. The Police say Yaw Amankwa, popularly known as Bulla and believed to be in his mid 40s, fled the Denkyira Obuasi area after the unfortunate incident and may be hiding along the borders of Ghana and Ivory Coast.

The second person, Mammy Dedeekor who is believed to be in her early 50’s, is suspected to be hiding in Aflao in the Volta Region. Meanwhile a bench warrant has been issued for the arrest of the two and the other four suspects whose names have been given as Nana Kwadwo (aka Naa Ajo), Tikwah, Yaw Boadu, and Kofi Ahenkora. “These suspects have since [the incident] been on the run,” the Police said. Description According to the Police, Yaw Amankwa is slightly fair, about 5ft 5inches tall, slim built with black hair, brown eyes and medium ears.

Mammy Dedeekor on the other hand is dark in complexion, about 4ft 8inches tall, slim built with black hair, brown eyes, and medium ears. “The public are encouraged to be on the lookout for these alleged murder suspects as necessary documentations and coordinations are underway to track Yaw Amankwah and Madam Dedeekor with the assistance of INTERPOL,” the Police said. It has thus urged anyone with information on their whereabouts to report to the Police Homicide Unit of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) or the nearest Police Station.
