Suspects in murder of female police officer remanded in prison custody as 2 more are arrested

The Tamale District Magistrate court 2 has remanded six suspects into prison custody in connection with the murder of the late police officer, Agatha Nana Nabin who was shot dead whilst on duty by gunmen.

All six suspects were brought to court today under heavy security from the SWAT unit of the Ghana police service.

The two additional suspects, Samuel Attutiga aged 32, and Hanan Alhassan Gurudoo aged 18, according to authorities were arrested after they had been questioned by police. They were also charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

Representing the prosecution, Inspector Victor Kwafo prayed the court not to grant bail to any suspect since the matter was still being investigated. The request was subsequently upheld.

It will be recalled that four persons were arrested on August, 6 with one sustaining injury during the arrest and was charged with murder, conspiracy to murder, possession of fire-arms and possession of military accoutrement. The suspects were subsequently arraigned before court.

At the second hearing Thursday, the trial judge, Mr  Seidu Amadu after listening to the prosecution and lawyer for one of the suspects, Anass Issahaku alias Chief Kazurilai declined bail. The case has been adjourned to September 5, 2019.

Meanwhile, the mortal remains of the late police officer will be laid to rest at her family’s house in Tamale on Saturday.
