A secret security camera has captured the image of the person who killed two watchmen at Apsonic Motors and Kasapreko, opposite the Ashaiman Senior High School at Ashaiman near Tema, on Saturday night, The Chronicle can report.
The image captured by the camera is also believed to be that of the same person who murdered one Joshua, a coconut seller by the Tema-Akosombo road.
A reliable security source who spoke to The Chronicle said the murderer applied the same modus operandi using concrete blocks to hit the back of the heads of the victims. After the killing, the murderer surgically extracted their eyes and tongues.
The Chronicle’s independent investigation reveals that on that fateful night, the dual carriageway in the area where the crime was committed was temporarily blocked by unknown persons, making it impossible for vehicles to ply.
Following the horrifying incident, the police, in the early hours of Monday, September 16 2019, assisted by armed personnel drawn from the Eastern Naval Command and First Battalion of Infantry descended on suspected criminal hideouts in the Tema Metropolis and Ashaiman Municipality.
The exercise was carried at Tema New Town, Community 5000 in the defunct Meridian Hotel enclave, and Tulaku near where Joshua, the coconut seller was killed.
Meanwhile, the police at Afienya have arrested a notorious criminal, Francis Nutufe Kwaku Azumah, 34, a mason, alleged to have led some daring armed robbery escapades in the jurisdiction.
The Afienya District Police Commander, Superintendent Asiamah Agyei, who confirmed the arrest to The Chronicle, stated that an accomplice in these robberies, only known as Kobby, is at large and has, therefore, been declared wanted.
According to Superintendent Agyei, the suspect and his gang had been terrorising residents of Newland, Mataheko and Jerusalem, among other areas with impunity. He mentioned that some months ago, the criminal group attacked the home of a businesswoman in Newland, and at gunpoint robbed her of cash and other valuables.
In the early hours of last Thursday morning, the police boss intimated that Azumah allegedly led an onslaught in the area and robbed, at least, five homes.
