Yaw Benneh: Cleaner confesses involvement in murder of law lecturer

A cleaner has reportedly admitted to his involvement in the murder of law lecturer, Professor Emmanuel Benneh.

This was revealed in court on Wednesday, September 30, 2020, when the prosecution told the court that, the cleaner, James Nana Womba, 26, has confessed his involvement in the murder.

The Cleaner and one other Apambour Agyabadu Nkansah have subsequently been charged with conspiracy to commit crime and murder.

Meanwhile, three out of the four persons who were arrested in relation to the death of the University of Ghana law lecturer, Professor Emmanuel Yaw Benneh, have been discharged.

The three discharged were, Christian Pobee, 32, cleaner; Isaac Botchwey, 41, houseboy; cleaner; and Adams Mensah Mansur, 52, gardener.

They were provisionally charged with murder.

James Nana Womba, 26, who was among the first four in court previously and one Opambour Agya Badu Nkansah have now been provisionally charged for murder and conspiracy.

In court on Wednesday, the prosecution led by Inspector Ebenezer Teye-Okuffo, withdrew the earlier charge and substituted with the new one.

He told the court that, their investigations did not incriminate the three persons and prayed for them to be discharged.

He said Womba upon investigation confessed of comprising with Nkansah and two others who are on the run to commit the crime.

The prosecutor, Inspector Ebenezer Teye-Okuffo, asked the court to remand them as investigations were still ongoing in the case.

The Kaneshie District Court presided over by Mrs Eleanor Kakra Barnes Botchway who is a Circuit Court judge sitting with additional responsibility as magistrate while adjourning the case to October 14, issued a bench warrant for the arrested of the two who are at large.

The court subsequently remanded the two into police custody, to enable the police to conduct further investigations into the suspected murder.

Starr news Court correspondent Murtala Inusah reports that the charges were read to them but the plea of the accused persons were not taken.
