An alleged photo of the suspects arrested in the stabbing death of Imoro Sherrif, a 22-year-old soldier in Ashaiman, has surfaced online.
The Ghana Police Service issued a statement on Friday night, March 10, 2023, announcing the arrest of the key suspects.
“After a week of a sustained intelligence-led operation, the Police have arrested the key suspects involved in the murder of Imoro Sherrif, the soldier who was found dead at Taifa Ashiaman on March 4th, 2023,” it said.
According to the statement, “full details of the arrests made by the Police on Thursday, 9th March and at dawn Friday, 10th March 2023, within Ashaiman and its environs” will be made public soon.
The suspects’ names were not mentioned in the communiqué, nor were their photographs made public.
However, following the press release, a photo of two men in handcuffs circulated on social media, with notes claiming they are the suspects in question.
One of them is wearing a yellow Cavs jersey with blue denim shorts, while the other is wearing a black tank top over a matching pair of denim shorts.
According to our information, the man in yellow is the boyfriend of the girl who is said to be double dating him and the soldier.
Heavy armed soldiers besieged Ashaiman, an Accra suburb, in the early hours of Tuesday, March 7, 2023, and brutalized residents over the murder of a colleague.
The soldiers’ incursion comes after Sherrif, a member of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) band in Sunyani, Bono Region, was reportedly stabbed and killed by unknown attackers Saturday morning.
According to the Military High Command, the deployment of the soldiers was intended to apprehend the perpetrators of the heinous crime.
According to sources, Sherrif was on his way back from his girlfriend’s house in Taifa to his home in Zongo-Laka in Ashaiman when the unfortunate incident occurred.
According to Daily Guide Network, despite carrying a laptop and other electronic devices, the attackers only took his iPhone.
Police are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the soldier’s death and are seeking public assistance.
