Police inspector accused of murdering his girlfriend not dead

The police inspector accused of using a service rifle to kill his girlfriend at Adum in Kumasi is alive and healthy, GhanaNewsPage.Com can confirm.

Social media reports have alleged the death of Inspector Ahmed Twumasi, also known as Tycoon, who has been on prison remand since his arrest last year.

Inspector Twumasi was arrested in May 2023, after a specialised police operation led to his arrest at his hideout at Sekyere near Effiduase in the Ashanti region.

He has been accused of shooting 26-year-old Victoria Dapaah, also known as Maadwoa, multiple times in the abdomen and chest on April 20, 2023, at about 9:50 p.m.

Though he is expected to appear before a Kumasi Court on April 15, 2024, rumours about his death has spread on social media.

Authorities at the Kumasi Central Prisons granted Luv FM’s Ohemeng Tawiah access to the cells of the remanded officer.

Spotting a white T-Shirt over a pair of khaki shorts, he responded to questions from prison officers and said he was hail and hearty.

Inspector Ahmed Twumasi told the officers that he was also privy to the rumours of his death.

Public Relations Officer of the Kumasi Central Prisons, Superintendent Richard Bukari in an interview with Joynews described rumours of Twumasi’s death as unfortunate.

“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.

Appalled by the circulation of fake news, prison authorities have launched investigations to get to the bottom of the issue and punish those involved.

“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.”

Meanwhile, Inspector Twumasi is expected to appear at the Kumasi High Court on April 15, 2024.
