Inspector Ahmed arrested for murder of ‘his girlfriend’ in Kumasi

The police have apprehended the police inspector who killed a woman at Adum in Kumasi last Thursday night, according to a recent report.

Inspector Ahmed Twumasi, who is accused of killing the young woman who was believed to be his girlfriend, was captured on Sunday night.

On Thursday night (April 20, 2023) in Kumasi, in the Ashanti area, there was a gunshot incident. The perpetrator, who had been on the run since the shooting, was captured in Sekyere, a town near Effiduase in the Ashanti Region, as a consequence of a special police operation that was launched in response to the shooting.

The suspect is currently being held by the police and will be brought before the court to answer for his or her actions, according to a statement issued by the police on Sunday night.

Recall that Inspector Ahmed Twumasi, after committing the dastardly act, hopped into a rickshaw [a small, two-wheeled passenger vehicle known as a Pragya in Ghana] and fled.

Around 10 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, 2023, the incident took place behind Aseda House near Dufie Towers. The woman, who was reportedly a single mother, was taken in an ambulance to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, where doctors immediately declared her dead.

According to eyewitnesses, the man was seen chatting with the deceased before shooting her at close range. “After the first two shots, she was pleading with the guy to stop and he added three more shots before jumping into a rickshaw [a light two-wheeled passenger vehicle] to run away.

“Because he was holding a gun, we could not attempt to arrest him,” said the eyewitnesses.
