The suspect, Emeka Adams

A 42-year-old Nigerian identified as Emeka Adams, has been charged with the murder of a 27-year-old teacher, Alice Adamtey in Accra, Ghana.

It was gathered that the suspect knocked the woman down with his vehicle, picked her up on the pretext of taking her to the hospital and abandoned her in a bush leading to her death.

The suspect was arrested on Wednesday, June 17 and is being processed for court on the charge of murder.

He is alleged to have committed the crime at the Adentan-Dodowa traffic intersection at about 7 p.m. on June 7, 2021 while he was driving a Hyundai Sonata Saloon vehicle with registration number GB 2126-20.

Confirming the incident on Thursday, June 17,  the Public Relations Officer of the Accra Regional Police Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Mrs Effia Tenge, said after knocking down the teacher, the suspect picked her up under the pretext of taking her to a health facility for treatment.

However, she said police investigations showed that the suspect allegedly abandoned the teacher in a bush at Abokobi, instead of taking her to the hospital.

The body of the victim was later found in the bush at Abokobi and the police were informed. Police retrieved the body and conveyed it to the Police Hospital Morgue for autopsy and preservation.
