Confirmed: State’s Star Witness Coup Trial Is A Murder Suspect

It has been confirmed that Sergeant Sule Kojo Awarf, the star witness in the treason trial over the supposed plot by ten persons to use kitchen knives and pepper bombs to overthrow the Akufo-Addo government is a murder suspect.

Sergeant Awarf is currently facing trial for reportedly murdering one Isaac Quansah in August 2020. A total of two criminal charges, namely; “murder contrary to Section 46 of the Criminal Offences Act 1960 (Act 29)”, and an attempt to commit crime, namely murder.

In the particulars of his offence, Awarf, 37 is told thus, “for that you on the 30th day of August 2020 at Nsakina near Amasaman in the Greater Accra District and within the jurisdiction of this court, did cause the death of Isaac Quansah at Ayitah by an unlawful harm.”

The revelation is interesting and throws a big spanner into the case of the State which is depending on supposed videos and audio clips that Awarf secretly recorded from his meetings with the ten people facing trial in the pepper bomb and kitchen knife coup plot.

But not only that, the revelation has raised questions including why the State’s stool pigeon in the treason trial has not faced court-martial if he is a murder suspect.

And if he is a murder suspect, how did he get to freedom to work freely as a soldier who was then planted among the alleged coup plotters with recording devices to secretly record their plot.

Increasingly, it appears to be crystalizing that Sergeant Awarf undertook to stage the recordings as part of a bargain of sorts with the State to frame the suspects in exchange for being left off the hook for dastardly murder of an unarmed civilian at Ayitah in 2020.

And Sergeant Awarf has since also been discovered to have enlisted into the Military with a forged certificate from Bechem Technical School. He is said to have lied under oath about it, perjuring himself badly before the High Court of competent jurisdiction.

In his murder case before the Adjabeng, the complainant is one Dennis Kwagyiri Quansah who is brother to the deceased, Isaac Quansah, and another, Bright Quansah. The Quansah’s, according to the facts of the case are all masons residing at Oshiuman.

Sergeant Sule, the alleged murderer is a serving soldier stationed at the Military Defense Intelligence unit at Teshie Camp in Accra.

According to the facts, the people of Oshiuman and the people of Abbeyman have a land dispute which is pending before the High Court. 

On 30 August 2020, one Oblitey Commey who hails from Nsakina invited Sergeant Awarf to a Homowo night party at Nsakian. Dennis Quansah who is the complainant in the case, along with his brothers Bright and Isaac who is now deceased also attended the party.

About 9 pm, a fight ensued between the youths of Abbeyman and Oshiman at the Homowo night party grounds. A young man who was being beaten by some youth including the deceased, Isaac Quansah ran to Sergeant Awarf who was sitting by a table for refuge. But the assailants pursued the young man to the table and continued the beatings.

Sergeant Awarf is said to have intervened and this led to the fight escalating to him. Awarf is said to have sustained a cut on the head as a result. Then according to the Police, in an attempt to disarm Awarf who was carrying a gun, the gun went off hitting Isaac Quansah and his brother Bright Quansah. 

Sergeant Awarf then fled the crime scene.

Isaac Quansah was then rushed to the OSAG Health Center for treatment but was pronounced dead on arrival. His brother, Bright, was rushed to Oduman Polyclinic and later referred to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital where he is on admission receiving treatment.

Interestingly, despite the revelations that the star witness may not be credible the three-member panel hearing the case held that the recordings from him are admissible as evidence in the case

The accused persons in the case Dr Frederick Yao Mac Palm, Donyo Kafui, alias Ezor, Bright Alan Debrah, alias BB, Johannes Zikpi, Colonel Samuel Kojo Gameli, Warrant Officer Class Two Esther Saan, Corporal Seidu Abubakar, Lance Corporal Ali Solomon, Corporal Sylvester Akanpewe, Assistant Commissioner of Police Benjamin Kwasi Agordzo have pleaded not guilty to charges including conspiracy to commit crime, high treason, abetment of crime and possession of arms
