Policeman Accused Of Killing Girlfriend In Kumasi Not Dead

An investigation by JoyNews has debunked the widespread rumours claiming that Inspector Ahmed Twumasi, the officer who killed his girlfriend in Kumasi last year, is dead.

The news of Ahmed’s alleged death began circulating recently, but despite being unverified, several reputable websites have reported it.

The suspect is currently in custody awaiting trial since the case was first brought to court. Inspector Twumasi was arrested in May 2023 following a targeted police operation that led to his capture at his hideout in Sekyere near Effiduase in the Ashanti region.

He stands accused of fatally shooting 26-year-old Victoria Dapaah, also known as Maadwoa, multiple times in the abdomen and chest on April 20, 2023, around 9:50 p.m. Although he is scheduled to appear in a Kumasi Court on April 15, 2024, unfounded rumors about his demise have circulated on social media.

A reporter from Joy News visited the prison where the suspect is being held to uncover the truth, and discovered that the accused is in a satisfactory condition.

Superintendent Richard Bukari, the Public Relations Officer of the Kumasi Central Prisons, expressed his disappointment over the rumors of Twumasi’s death during an interview with Joynews.

“I emphatically say it is not true. Ahmed Twumasi is hail and hearty in custody. Nothing has happened  to him and I promise nothing will happen to him. Looking at him, he’s not even sick and I wonder under what circumstances Twumasi would be declared dead,” he said.

“Taking note that he’s a state property, we would not do anything that would compromise his health, his security and his well-being in the prisons. So I say on authority that Twumasi is not dead; he is alive, healthy and undergoing his trial processes”. Superintendent Bukari added.

Shocked by the spread of false information, prison officials have initiated inquiries to uncover the truth and mete out consequences to those responsible.

“We are not leaving it just there. We are going further to investigate the source of that info. Whoever would have generated such false information that is causing this upheaval in the general public would have to be dealt with according to the laws of Ghana.”
