Preliminary investigations by the Eastern Regional Police Command into the suspected murder of the 34-year old aircraft technician with Africa World Airlines (AWA), Prince Kobina Kumi, has revealed that he was shot twice, in his jaw and his chest.

Prince Kobina Kumi, who was on his way from Accra to visit his mum at Asuboa in the Eastern region for the Easter festivities was initially arrested by the police at Akroso for drink-driving.

He was found dead on Monday between Akroso and Asuboa with bullet wounds after the police seized his car over suspected drink-driving.

According to the Eastern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Ebenezer Tetteh, investigations are still ongoing to unravel the mystery behind the killing.
“Preliminary investigations at the scene of the crime indicated that he was shot on the jaw and the chest, and he was left at the scene where he was found on Monday,” he said.

Meanwhile, the body has been transferred from the Eastern Region to the Police Hospital in Accra for autopsy.

“The reason why the body was conveyed there was to preserve it and have the post-mortem done,” ASP Tetteh explained.

Meanwhile, the driver who was said to have conveyed the deceased to complete his journey after his car was seized, is still in police custody assisting with investigations.

ASP Tetteh said “the driver is a material witness and he is assisting us in the investigations. If anything comes up which is incriminating which connects him to the offence we are investigating, that is murder, it is then we will move and charge him.”

ASP Tetteh was not clear on whether the driver had been arrested or was willingly in police custody.

“A statement has been taken from the driver, and in due course, he will be granted police enquiry bail,” he told Citi News when probed on the matter.
