Ofankor murder: We can't confirm if the interrogator in the video was a police officer - DSP Tenge

Head of Public Relations of the Accra Regional Police Command, DSP Effia Tenge has said, that the person, captured in a viral video of an interrogation session involving the landlord who shot his tenant, cannot be confirmed as a police officer.

The suspect, 38-year-old landlord, Victor Stephen Kankan, who shot his tenant, was captured responding to interrogations by an unidentified person, whom several reports have suggested was a police officer.

Questions have since emerged, about the legality of the interrogation session which was recorded and disseminated on many platforms.

Reacting to this in an interview with GhanaWeb, DSP Effia Tenge said it couldn't be ascertained, as at Tuesday night, whether or not the person involved in the investigations was indeed a police officer.


"I don't have information on that yet" she said, whilst condemning the act.

According to her, no investigation must be publicised.

"No, it must not be so. No investigation should be done in the open." She told GhanaWeb.



Meanwhile, residents of the area; Ofankor, say, that the landlord, Victor Stephen Nana Kankam, is fond of issuing threats hence the killing of his tenant does not come as a surprise to them.

The Abeka District Court has since remanded him into police custody for allegedly shooting and killing his tenant, Spark Benjamine over rent.

Kankam, also known as Nii Kojo Konim Obio-Cyhoera, will undergo a test for COVID-19 before going into lawful custody.

Provisionally charged with murder, the court, presided over by Ms Adwoa Achaama Ofosu, preserved his plea. Kankam is expected to reappear on June 8.
