The Ashanti Regional Police Command has arrested one more person in connection with the murder of a community nurse, Ruth Ama Eshun, in the Bosomtwe District of the Ashanti Region.
This brings to two the number of suspects arrested in the case. Several others have also been questioned.
The 37-year old mason apprentice, Kofi Gariba alias Amanya Atiuwenti, was arrested on Thursday, February 13 to assist in investigations into the murder case.
He is currently being held by the police who are preparing to put him before court.
The first suspect, Dominic Fosu, 35 years, was arrested on February 5, 2020 at Sewua Aboaso after a Samsung mobile phone belonging to him was retrieved at the crime scene.
He has since been remanded into police custody by the Asokwa District Court presided over by Ms Korkor Achaw Owusu to appear again on Wednesday, February 26, 2020.
“The Command assures the bereaved family and the general public that it will do everything possible within the laws of our land to get the perpetrators to face the full rigors of the law,” a police statement on Monday said.
It has meanwhile appealed to the general public, especially anyone with information on the perpetrator (s) to volunteer same to the Ashanti Regional Police Command.
The police has also urged the media to be circumspect in their reportage of such cases in order not to jeopardize investigation.
