The Ofankor District Court has today remanded two traditional leaders into Police custody for allegedly plotting to kill the chief of Gomoa Fetteh, Nana Abora Attah. The anti-robbery unit of the Ghana Police Service shot 5 people dead in a gun exchange. These men were suspected to be on a mission to kill the Chief of Gomoa Fetteh.
Two of the suspected killers escaped during the shootout but the Police arrested them later in Awoshie - Accra after a tip-off. The two arrested persons confessed to the Police that they were hired by two traditional leaders, namely; Nana Essel Amankwah Andoh III, chief of Gomoa Fetteh Kakraba and Nana Yaw Kodomadu, the Omankrado of Gomoa Fetteh Kakraba.
The traditional leaders gave the killers GHC 4000 through an intermediary by the name of Philip Fenni who died through the shootout. The Prosecutor, Chief Inspector Peter Amponsah presented this case to the court in Ofankor. The lead counsel for the two traditional leaders arrested by the Police, Lawyer Ishmael Kofi Turkson said the prosecution lacks solid grounds to remand his clients.
However, the Presiding Judge, His Lordship Eric Ohene Antwi Boasiako remanded the Chiefs into Police custody. The Chief Prosecutor added that the two suspects who confessed to the Police fell ill on their way to court and were immediately rushed to the hospital.
He assured them that they will appear before the court when they are well and discharged from the hospital.
