A cleaner for the late Prof. Yaw Benneh has allegedly self-confessed as the murderer of the late law Lecturer.
Prosecutors told an Accra court today that James Nana Womba confessed to the dastardly murder and named two accomplices, one of whom is on the run.
The Police have since arrested a certain Opambour Agya Badu, one of the alleged accomplices that Womba named while under interrogation.
According to the prosecutors, the confession has also since informed the State’s decision to drop charges against three other suspects that had earlier been picked up along with Nana Womba – Christian Pobee, Isaac Botchwey, and Adams Mensah Mansur – on September 16th.
The State had earlier charged the four suspects with murder before securing Womba’s confession to the crime.
The name of the second suspect named by Womba was not revealed in court. The court remanded the self-confessed Womba and Opambour Agyei Badu in custody and given October 14th as return date.
Prof. Yaw Benneh, a University of Ghana Law Professor was found dead in his Adjiringanor home earlier in the month, with his hands tied behind his back and his mouth stuffed with rags, indicating he was molested by his assailants before his murder.
His domestic staff, a house cleaner has confessed that he led that operation, according to prosecutors.
