Daily Guide has reported that two out of the alleged three persons who are said to have aided a suspect, Eric Kojo Dua, in the gruesome murder of two police officers at Buduburam near Kasoa in the Central Region were on Monday, October 1, remanded by the Kaneshie District Court in Accra.

The incident which involved other suspects namely Micheal Sarfo and Kwasi Adjei and one other person named Theophilus were alleged to have gone into hiding after two policemen who were on patrol duties on August 28 were murdered during a traffic stop incident.

The suspects have been charged with conspiracy in the murder of Sgt. Micheal Dzamasi, a service driver and Lance Cpl. Awal Mohammed, who were personnel of the Motor Transport and Traffic Department (MTTD) detachment at Kasoa.

The prosecution team led by ASP Sylvester Asare told the court that investigations were still ongoing and asked that the accused suspects be remanded for further investigation.

Rosemond Agyiri, Presiding Magistrate however ruled that the suspects be remanded to reappear before court on October 9, 2019.
