According to reports by MyNewsGh.com, 6 suspects have been arrested in connection with the murdered Mfantseman MP’s case after his cell phone was found to have been sold for Ghc750 at the black market.
These suspects are currently casting blame on each other as Police still interrogate them in order to find who was first to be in possession of the phone to be able to trace it to the robbers.
The phone, a Samsung Galaxy A50, was traced to Kumasi three weeks ago where it had been sold on the black market.
This led to the arrest of Alhasan Abubakar alias Fulani, a phone repairer; Nasiru Fudailu, a businessman; Alhassan Mahama Yaya, alias Mystical Cloud, a resident of Dansoman; and Amadu Yakubu, a mobile money vendor, along with Haruna Osmanu, a trader, and Adam Alhasan.
According to Chief Inspector Seth Frimpong, Nasiru Fudailu was the one in possession of the handset when the phone was traced and he told Police that he had bought the phone for Ghc750 from Alhassan Abubakar.
Nasiru led the Police to Abubakar at Akwatialine in Kumasi only for the latter to claim that he also bought it from a vendor called Mohammed for Ghc650.
However, all apprehended suspects to the case have been charged with conspiracy to robbery and robbery.
They have pleaded not guilty and have been remanded to reappear on November 16, 2020.
