The Ashanti Regional Police Command has declared a 38-year-old man, Alhaji Saddat Mohammed, popularly called Alhaji, wanted, in connection with the murder of Otumfuo’s Asamponhene.

The police command said Alhaji Saddat is a key suspect in the murder of Nana Kwadwo Afordour.

“So far, our investigations tell us that he [deceased] was in the company of one Saddat Mohammed, who is 38 years old and popularly known as Alhaji,” Regional Deputy Police Commander, ACP David Agyemang Adjem, told the media at a press briefing on Wednesday, 21 August 2019.

He said the deceased was with “Alhaji at his residence at Kwadaso, and again, we’ve information that they had travelled together on that same day” when the Asamponhene was found dead.

Mr Adjem said the police command is making all efforts to locate the suspect but to no avail.

“So, the command has secured an arrest warrant for this person (Saddat Mohammed) and, so, we declare him a wanted person,” he said.

Three suspects have already been arrested in connection with the murder.

Mr Adjem said the suspects who have been arrested were very close to the late chief.

Nana Kwadwo Afordour was murdered by some armed men on the Ejura-Nkoransa highway near a village called Ebuom on Sunday, 18 August 2019 around 4:30 p.m. in the Ashanti Region.

The police believe the late chief was murdered and his body deposited in the back seat of his Toyota Land Cruiser.

ACP Adjem had urged the public to assist the police with information on the whereabouts of the suspect.
