Victoria Dapaah, also known as Maadwoa in Adum-Kumasi, is believed to have been killed by Inspector Ahmed Twumasi, who confessed to killing her because she owed him GH $5,000.
The prosecution’s paper, which was read out in open court on Tuesday, April 25, contained this information.
At the Asokore Mampong District Court, it was a difficult day because police needed help to transport Inspector Ahmed Twumasi out of the building.
Murder charges have been brought against Inspector Twumsi.
The offender used a service handgun to carry out the heinous deed, it was also demonstrated in court.
Inspector Twumasi responded when asked by the judge whether he had anything to say despite being unable to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty: “I have no intention to commit the crime; what happened is between me and God.”
He has been remanded into police custody to reappear on Tuesday, May 30.
Victoria Dapaah, also known as Maadwoa, was shot many times at close range by Inspector Twumasi, killing her instantly.
The incident took place on April 20, 2023, about 9:30 p.m.
On Thursday, April 2023 at around 10:15 p.m., a formal case complaint was filed by Mr. Emmanual Dapaah, uncle to the deceased, explaining that his niece Maa Aadjoa 27, had been shot by his former boyfriend at Adum in front of Dufie Towers. The suspect took to his heels in a Pragya tricycle after the crime was committed.
The facts of the case were presented in court on Tuesday, April 25, 2023 by the Head of Legal and Prosecution of the Ashanti Regional Command, ACP Kofi Blagodzi.
The dead body of the deceased was left at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital when the police arrived at the crime scene and saw her lying in a pool of blood after being shot multiple times. Following an investigation, the culprit was apprehended in his hiding place in Asokore in the Ashanti region’s Effiduase District.
Further explaining, he told the court that “during Police questioning, the suspect confessed to committing the crime over GH5000 debt the deceased refused to refund after their amorous relationship went sour leading to crime.”
Other police investigations, according to ACP Blagodzi, also proved that the suspect committed the murder in front of the deceased friend Eunice, who had been invited by Inspector Twumasi to go with him to settle his conflict with his ex-girlfriend.
During his impassioned response to his accusation in court, suspect Inspector Twumasi said, “it was never my intention to kill the deceased, only God knows what happened between the two of us there’’.
ACP Kofi Blagodzi begged His Worship Samuel Buaben Quansah, the presiding court judge, to remand the suspect into police custody for one month so that the police could complete their investigation. The request was granted, and the court ordered the parties to reappear on May 30, 2023.
