A Ghanaian Player Has Been Detained In Connection With The Suspected Murder Of Two Police Officers.

Ganiu Iddrisu, a Ghanaian football player, has been placed on police remand after it was stated that on May 2, 2024, he shot and killed two police officers at East Trasacco.

Along with Ganiu Iddrisu, four other suspects were taken into custody: an Arabic translator, a public servant, and a gardener.

Chief Inspector Margaret Ofori Boadi of the Legal and Prosecution Unit at CID Headquarters presented the case’s facts to the court on Wednesday, May 8, 2024. She informed the court that the accused individuals and other fugitives planned to shoot and kill the two police officers.

The suspects were identified by her as the following: gardener Alex Appoh; public servant Mohammed Alhassan Damba; football player Ganiu Iddrisu; and foreman and Arabic interpreter Chinkor Abdullah Alhassan of the Hakska Block Factory at East Trasacco.

She clarified that the two off-duty police officers, L/Cpl. Tasigya Ngapun Isaac and Constable Benjamin Tindum, were sitting in front of their private home near the Hakska Block Factory in East Trasacco, East Legon, Accra, when the accused people planned to kill them on May 2, at around 6:30 p.m.

She asked the judge to remand them so that the investigations could continue.

Nelson Noble Adedawonu, the accused parties’ attorney, asked the court to grant bail on the grounds that the first accused party was not even in the court’s jurisdiction at the time of the alleged crime, and that the evidence did not support the charges.

Additionally, he told Prince Osei Owusu, the trial magistrate, that the police had wrongly detained those who were unaware of the crime at East Trasacco.

The trial magistrate heard arguments from both parties and remanded the accused into police custody, citing jurisdictional limitations that prevented him from granting bail.

He postponed the case until May 20, 2024 and advised the accused’s attorney to get bail at the proper forum.
